Event Description

Full Description:
Despite a history of use in the Two-Thirds World, sport for development (SFD) is increasingly being employed as a tool for domestic development in marginalized communities in the so-called “developed” world. Canada and Australia are two countries where government, nongovernmental organisations, and the private sector have all become engaged in SFD.

In this presentation, Dr Steven Rynne will provide an overview of Canadian and Australian government policies that have framed the apparent need for SFD in Indigenous communities, as well as the need for private sector funding – particularly mining, oil, and gas – of these SFD initiatives.

He will then highlight the ways in which community members perceive that private sector funding for SFD programs has the potential to both threaten and reaffirm Indigenous self-determination.

Dr Steven Rynne is a Senior Lecturer, Program Convenor for Sports Coaching, and Poche Centre Affiliate with The University of Queensland, Australia. Steven has worked and conducted research with a variety of peak domestic and international sporting bodies in the areas of high-performance coach learning and Indigenous sport. Steven teaches undergraduate and graduate students, is a registered HPE teacher, and coaches track cyclists.
