Mapping of good practices relating to social inclusion of migrants through sport

This recent study provides an overview of sports-related projects and interventions aimed at the social inclusion of migrants. The study is based on the examination of more than 60 examples and concludes that integration through sport is successful if activities include or foster:

  • a positive societal context,
  • the creation of ownership for the programmes,
  • the opportunity for cultural exchange and learning,
  • the development of pathways into volunteering and skills acquisition,
  • the enhancement of cultural sensitivity.
