The right reasons to fund Sport for Development and Peace Initiatives (SDP)
Reason 13: Universality 2“In the sectors of sport, but also Sport for Development and peace, the United Nations would not need other voices than those of the International Olympic Committee”. This is the decision of the Secretary-General of the United Nations. Let's continue our interrogation on the notion of universality. Two other definitions provide guidance on the UN's new universal sport for development and peace policy.
- Universality: The character of what extends to all men, of what is common to all men.
- Universality: The character of that which extends to the totality of a given human community, in particular, what comes from all.
Let's recap! Olympic sport no doubt extends to the whole world. It extends at least to a given human collectivity, that of the elite and competitive sport. To the best of our knowledge is it extended to all men and is it common to all men. We can doubt it. See next.
