The goal of the project was to build and strengthen a transnational network and to create a model of social inclusion and empowerment for migrants (refugees, women requesting asylum, Roma, and asylees).
After having worked a year exchanging materials and best practices and organizing various meetings and roundtables, the results of the collective work were brought together in this methodology guide.
The intention was not only to deepen the context of reference and understand the main areas of involvement, but also to offer specific recommendations and the practical advice for improving social inclusion of target populations often considered marginalized within the sports world, both at the professional and amateur level.
This guide aims to offer recommendations and positive proposals to various groups of stakeholders:
- Sports associations / Federations
- Civil society in its entirety (in particular associations that work alongside migrants, political refugees and those requesting asylum)
- Local/national authorities
The specific goal is to assist the various entities in offering specific actions to promote social inclusion.
For this reason, the first part of this guide is composed of methodological information on various topics, the presentation of the two study cases provided in the project, and a general introduction to the context of reference.
In the second part, the greatest challenges were identified for every social actor attempting to reach the goal of social inclusion through sports. For every specific work area, the main recommendations were identified along with specific and practical actions to attain the expected results.
