The contribution sport can make towards peace-building efforts has generally been considered at the grassroots and nation state levels.
At the grassroots or community level, sport can be seen to provide a useful way of creating an environment in which people can come together to: work towards the same goal, show respect for others and share space and equipment. All these aspects are crucial to peace-
building processes and are exemplified in findings from a Peace Players International programme.The programme ‘bridging divides’ uses Sport to bring children and communities together.
An assessment of the programme shows that the majority of participants expressed fewer racial stereotypes and less racism compared to People who
were not part of the programme.
A study on the role of sport in fostering social integration among different ethnic groups showed that several factors contributed to the use of sport being successful in bringing about exchange and building relationships between different groups, including sport’s non-verbal means of communication; sport as a means to engage in collective experience and establish direct physical contact; and sport’s ability to transcend class divisions.
