In recent years the concept of sport-for-development has steadily risen in prominence within development policy and practice. Research on the field, however, remains in its infancy. Existing literature is characterized by an international perspective on broad policy themes. This jointly-authored book represents a departure. It offers a case study of sport for development in Zambia (extended to the Global South more generally) which provides a model for sport-for-development research using localized analyses. Focusing on the role of sport in HIV AIDS prevention, and with a strong empirical base which emphasizes the representation of local voices, the book contextualizes sport- for-development within a wider analysis of sport policy and HIV/AIDS policy, and locates the experiences and responses of participants within their broader lifestyles.
