    Peace and Sports

    2 credits / 6 weeks
    13 Nov 2017 – 22 Dec 2017

    Professor Gal Harmat
    Professor Gal Peleg Laniado


    The course will challenge and examine the role that sports play in conflict resolution, as part of the methodology of Peace Education at large. Sport has played a constructive role in bringing two conflicting sides together. The course will confront with the questions:  What is Sport for development (and conflict resolution as a branch of this field)? What can Sport contribute to Peacebuilding? How sport can play a constructive role in conflict prevention and conflict transformation? What examples in the world should we carefully look at and learn from and is Sport alone is enough? Finally, the students will have the chance to set their own “recipe for success” through building a toolkit for using sport as a tool for conflict transformation or analyzing an international conflict zone and how sport plays (or played) a role in breaking those barriers.
