Introduction

The International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) is an opportunity to learn about the positive role that sports and physical activity play in societies and the lives of all people around the globe, including prisoners. Sport is an inherent right and a powerful tool for peace and development. It may seem self-evident that people's health should not be affected by prison. Yet, many prisoners spend their detention durations in unsanitary conditions in overcrowded cells. It is essential to provide them with enough outdoor time per day to breathe, walk and engage in other sports activities. On this occasion, Belady chose to focus on the importance of the prisoners' right to exercise by taking a glance at the accessibility of this right in Egyptian prisons through addressing some aspects of exercise.
