Privatized Aid and Sport for Development in Indigenous Communities (2015-2020)

I was a Co-investigator on a SSHRC IG titled, ‘Natural Resource Development, Privatized Aid, Sport and Development: A Comparison of Canada and Australia’ (2015-2020, Principal Investigator – Dr. Audrey Giles, Co-Investigators Dr. Steven Rynne and Dr. Tony Rossi). This project investigated how the politics of privatized aid provided by the extractives sector shapes domestic sport-focused health and development interventions that target Indigenous communities in Canada and Australia. Publications emerging from this grant are featured in Aboriginal Policy Studies, Leisure/Loisir and Sociology of Sport Journal.
