COVER A soccer game at Khazir refugee camp outside Erbil, northern Iraq. A randomized study assigned displaced Christians to a soccer team with displaced Muslims or to an all-Christian team. Playing on a mixed team improved Christians' behaviors toward Muslim peers, but not toward Muslims more broadly. The results highlight the potential and limitations of intergroup contact after war.
