Abstract

This paper examines local ‘grassroots’ perspectives on both the role of sport and valueof sport in the Northern Ireland peace process. Building on the work developed bySugden and Bairner (1986, 1992, 1993, 1999) on the contribution of sport tocommunity relations in Northern Ireland, the research programme draws on two maindisciplinary paradigms: Sport for Peace (SfP), itself a component of the broader Sportfor Development and Peace (SDP) movement (Kidd, 2008) and Peacebuilding/ConflictTransformation. Conceptually the research is informed by the work of Antonio Gramsci(1971), in particular the centrality of social class in sport (Bairner 2009) and theoperation of hegemonic power and counter-hegemonic strategies.
