The International Sports Promotion Society (ISPS) Handa Young Leaders Fellowship Program for Sport, Peace, and Development was launched in May 2014 at the third in a series of global summits on Sports Values Summit for Peace and Development, at the United Nations in New York. ISPS supports action-focused pilot projects and relevant research and communications by inspired young leaders who see sports as an avenue to promote development and peace. Projects are to link sports with peacebuilding and local and national social and economic priorities, especially in conflict-affected and marginalized communities.
