We want to recognize scholarly work from a Developing Country and create stronger connections between AIESEP and developing countries. Eligibility is confined to faculty members located in a developing country. The research to be presented at AIESEP should be grounded in Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy and be situated within a developing country. All researchers from developing countries are encouraged to apply.
