Social Inclusion Methodology in Critical Areas via Sport aims at defining and testing a methodological approach that helps the sports operators to define and use efficient measures in critical contests and allow continuity and replicability.

A METHODOLOGICAL APPROACH

IDENTIFIED through:

  • bibliographic research on the integration processes focused on sport and on the characteristics and difficulties of integration of foreigners in the chosen contexts;
  • interviews with stakeholders; 
  • the analysis of good practices existing at the European level and promoted by the project partners;
  • a sustainability forms research;

TESTED AND EVALUATED by project partners in different contests for the geographic localization and the critical types:

  • in Italy, with immigrants that are in the prison of Bologna, which is characterized by a high percentage of immigrants;
  • in Slovenia, with second-generation immigrants coming from the countries of the ex-Yugoslavia;
  • in Germany, with political refugees (immigrants that already have or are waiting for that status);
  • in Greece, with immigrants that live in the refugee’s camps or temporary accommodations;
  • in Spain, with immigrants (mostly second generation) coming from Africa and from eastern Europe that live in a vulnerable neighbourhood in Banyoles city;
  • in Denmark, with new immigrants looking for politic asylum in a country with a low migrants’ flow and, even for this reason, more efficient integration actions. From this, higher expectations for the inclusion point of view;

DIVULGED to strengthen the competences of the sports operators and, by doing so, promote the propagation of the inclusiveness initiatives towards immigrants in the critical area.
