About the Sport in Africa day Sport is used increasingly as an instrument for positive social change in Africa. But what exactly is it that sports (can) do and to what degree, and how can they effect change? Are some sports more likely to be effective means for socio-economic advancement? And if so, why is that? These and other questions will be addressed during the 2016 NVAS Africa Day. Organisers are Frank van Eekeren (Utrecht University School of Governance, research focus area Sport & Society); Kirsten Langeveld (NVAS), David Drengk (NVAS) and Froukje Krijtenburg (NVAS)
