Abstract

This presentation will provide resources and demonstrate examples of using the compelling narratives of sports culture, history, politics, and economics as a mechanism to actively engage students, educators, practitioners, and policy makers in difficult conversations about sensitive topics related to conflict and peace. This workshop seeks to: provide a mechanism of engaging (typically males) in discussions about traditionally difficult or sensitive topics; and provide sports-based examples of difficult social issues and the power of peaceful conflict resolution.
