Abstract

This paper gives the vision of the initiators of the programme on the two basic elements of the title: 'Sport for Development' and 'African International Interuniversity Initiative'. This vision is already partly put in concrete actions, however partly still under discussion between the interested partner universities. The explicit formulation and justification of the basic assumptions may help to find in an open discussion a creative solution for all challenges that may slow down or impoverish the realisation of the initiative.
