Title

Recapturing youth through sport in a peaceful South Sudan
Colin Lasu


Abstract
This paper examines notions of resilience, the ability to rebound from a traumatic experience to a sense of normalcy, among South Sudanese young men in Panyagor,
South Sudan. This case study is based on observations of a four-day soccer tournament. The paper is also an examination of a post-war environment and the role and impact that this soccer tournament, the first of its kind, meant for the young men who participated in it.
