Ulster Sports Academy
Sport, Peace Building and Integration
“Sport has the power to change the world, it has the power to inspire in a way that little else does, it speaks to youth in a language they understand. It laughs in the face of discrimination”. Nelson Mandela.
On a daily basis the Ulster Sports Academy use theoretical knowledge and apply this to practical sporting case studies for teaching and learning. The team has a record collating and analyzing data in order to create an evidence base to inform policy development and create programmes and structures that result in increased capacity and the creation of a sustainable lasting legacy within the community. This process of using academic expertise to design programmes and structures to fit local practical issues within sport and peace building has resulted in maximum impact locally and shared learning through international research collaborations. further information on Sport Peace Building and Integration is available in pdf format.
