Dear Sir, Dear Madam,
We would like to draw your attention to the report Sport for development and peace – the role of the International Olympic Committee (Sport Policy & Management report No. 16).
Sport Policy & Management reports is a publication series of the Policy in Sports & Physical Activity Research Group, Faculty of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Sciences, University of Leuven (KU Leuven).
The SPM16 report (Arts, Lesage, Bruyninckx & Scheerder, 2013) aims to explain the role of sports as a tool for development and peace, which is embraced by the Sport for Development and Peace movement. NGOs like the International Olympic Committee (IOC) have emerged as promoters of sport as a means of achieving the MDGs. The increasing relevance of the IOC in the SDP context has been analysed.
The report can be downloaded free of charge at http://faber.kuleuven.be/spm/ (registration is obligatory).
