The Olympic Movement and Sport of Peacemaking
by Cindy Burleson
Sport and peacekeeping have evolved. It is no longer the case that the Olympic Games and war games exist separately from one another. More and more, policy makers, peacekeepers, development workers, athletes and others combine forces in an "integrated" approach toward peace. This approach is located not only within a broader, historically evolved Olympic movement but also in relation to a newly emerged social movement that promotes development and peace through sport. This introduction to the Olympic Truce explores the power of truce, which could very well be history's key to the next 1000 year peace accord.
