Interesting read: Development and Dreams

8 September 2009

Dev&Dreams 

A lot of very interesting reads can be found on the Human Science Research Council’s (HSRC) press website- many of which can be partially downloaded for free!

Click here to browse the numerous publications. You are able to browse the HSRC publications by category or discipline of interest.

The website homepage has an extensive list of categories, for example: Development Studies, Education, Gender Studies, and so forth. Titles relevant to your particular discipline of interest are grouped under the respective category. This category grouping is valuable in terms of providing the reader with the current research trends and findings within the chosen discipline.

Development and Dreams (2009) is one title which may be particularly relevant to organisations working within the development sector.  This book, about the increased role that sport is playing in development, is important in the context of South Africa hosting the 2010 FIFA World Cup™.

The prevalent use of sport as a medium for development is demonstrated in a recent evaluation of the South African based Stars in their Eyes Project, conducted by Development Works. The project is a joint initiative between the Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport and the Netherlands Stars in their Eyes Project. The project is conceptualised upon the model of using sport to drive sustainable community development.
