Abstract: This is a report of the international conference “More Than Child’s Play: Challenging Sport for Development and Peace for Conflict Affected Children and Youth”, which was held on 19 May 2009 in The Hague. The objective of the conference was to identify further research areas that will help bridge concerns faced by policymakers, as well as to provide useful output for practitioners. Through a critical examination of the role of Sport for Development and Peace for conflict affected children, the conference provided a forum for constructive discussion. A better understanding of how to best enhance child welfare in pre- and post conflict situations is urgently needed. By hosting this conference, ISS is proud to continue its long tradition of being at the forefront of discussions on development.
