Posted on August 22, 2011 at 11:21pm 3 Comments

The Georgetown University and Generations For Peace Summer Research Fellows have all returned to DC after three months in the field. As we begin to digest our research and experiences, we wanted to share a piece of our journey with you.

 

What was the most surprising thing you found?

Connection! I was surprised (and encouraged!) to find out how well the organizations and the academics I was interviewing were…

Reflections – Why Sport?

Posted on July 25, 2011 at 5:30pm 6 Comments

When I tell people I am researching sport and peacebuilding, it never fails that I get one of two responses – the confused look that usually signifies a predisposition to thinking of those two concepts as mutually exclusive or the sudden dawning of “oh that sounds cool!”

Lessons from the field of sport and peace

I started to write this blog about advice for practitioners, the importance of learning from failure and of conducting monitoring and evaluation for that purpose.

The representative of Generations For Peace I spoke with were from Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine. Though… Continue

The When of Sport and Peace

Posted on June 6, 2011 at 6:12am 0 Comments

Dear friend
"Vasudev kutumbkam" entire world is a family, this was a teaching of our Indian culture and tradition.
We created countries, boundaries,religions.But this is the time to realize that we are one, our source of life and breath is same , we naturally interconnected with each other.When we understand this simple thing then we must understand how our and other's life is equally important, valuable and respectable.God has given us a human life to look after the wellbeing of all living life in this planet.

yes you are right with this research, the power of sports for peace is very commendable, like what we have experienced here in mindanao the southern part of the philippines, we emphasized sports in our curriculum and helps our students attitudes which are mixed up of several culture in mindanao. and i know you heard how mindanao has been a place of trouble specifically in the muslims dominated areas as a physical education teacher it is our prayer that through sports peace could be achieve.......
