This event will consider the important - but often overlooked in migration research - role of sports initiatives for migrants in supporting them to build social relations in new places, in so doing increasing their sense of participation and belonging.
The speakers at the event will analyse selected sport initiatives in which migrants participate, as well as the challenges and barriers that can limit this participation, and provide preliminary recommendations on the better design of integration programmes that foster social integration and strengthen local relationship building.
Discussion will be based on the preliminary results of an ongoing qualitative study conducted within the 'Empowerment through liquid integration of migrant youth in vulnerable conditions (MIMY)' project, funded by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 programme.
