dc.description.abstract The focus of this chapter is on understanding how positive social impacts can be created and leveraged through sport events to achieve lasting peaceful outcomes for disparate communities. The chapter builds on practical work in Sri Lanka and suggests ways for event planners and managers to maximise and leverage social benefits for participants, spectators, supporters and the wider community. The chapter is underpinned by a discussion of the concept of intergroup relations and an examination of previous research on the contribution sport events make to peace and inclusive social development. Strategies for maximising sport event benefits are highlighted; they represent valuable learning opportunities for those interested in fostering peace through sport event tourism en_US
