Dr Clever Chikwanda, Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the IDCPPA, is gave the April 2 lunchtime seminar titled "Combining school sport with mediation skills as a catalyst for post-conflict community healing in South Africa". This paper argues that post-conflict communities need capacity to effectively deal with violent conflict. One of these capacity building mechanisms is school sport, which, when combined with mediation programmes, can contribute to a culture of peace and provide the prerequisite first step for sustainable community healing and transformation.
