In the field of sport-for-development and peace (SDP), decolonizing approaches have been both advocated and employed for the purposes of scholarly investigation and practice (Darnell & Hayhurst, 2011; Oxford, 2019). This session seeks to build on these discussions relating to decolonization and to advance theoretical, conceptual, methodological, and practical insights into how SDP is researched and conducted. In line with the conference theme, we invite papers that engage with decolonial approaches in order to question the dominant meanings of ‘sport’, ‘development’, and the growing ‘SDP’ movement/industry/institution, particularly through Indigenous and marginalized perspectives. Questions we hope to explore include both substantive and methodological concerns, such as: How may research in local contexts, that adopts a decolonial approach, inform the international field of SDP? What are some of the complications, contradictions, and concerns that may arise through adopting decolonial approaches to research and SDP? All paper presentations that revolve around such questions and others related to SDP and the conference theme are invited.
