Interventionist sport as mediatized utopia: a practice-informed critique of Football 4 Peace

  • John Doyle

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


Football 4 Peace (F4P) is a sports-based coexistence initiative that operates between divided communities in Israel. The project has nurtured a number of high-profile partnerships with various local, national and international agencies and organisations. The F4P programme utilises an innovative methodology that foregrounds a ‘values-based’ approach to coaching. Like many sports interventions, the project is highly mediatized and has been the subject of a number of documentary film projects.
