Call for Papers | “Sport, Development, and Peace”, Special Issue of Peace Review: A Journal of Social Justice | Call ends August 15, 2020
This special issue of Peace Review seeks to investigate the current social, cultural, political, and scholarly discourse around sports, development, and peace in a global context. How has sport been deployed as a tool for strengthening social ties and networks, for promoting ideals of peace, fraternity, solidarity, non-violence, tolerance, and justice? How is sport an “instrument” for peace? How does sport contribute to development?
Ph.D. Candidate position | The International Olympic Committee (IOC) | Kristiania University College. Application deadline: September 29, 2019
The project objective is to investigate what International Sporting Associations actually do when it comes to the human rights situation in countries where sporting events are held. The ambition is to explore their potential for institutional innovation in order to remain independent as servants of sport and through that, as interlinked by the Office of the High Commissioner, contribute to the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
We invite inter-disciplinary submissions that critically engage with the politics of leisure and sport in official human rights instruments, discourse and praxis, and which shed new light on the historical and philosophical conditions within which the protection and promotion of human rights is made possible.
