    Call for Papers | “Transgressing Boundaries: Migration and Sport”, a SiNAFE Conference | March 3-4, 2023, at Istanbul Bilgi University. Call ends February 8, 2023 

    In this project, we try to preserve a simple but crucial idea: having equal conditions in sports is a human right. With the idea that “sport is a human right,” the project wants to promote social inclusion and help make sure that everyone has equal opportunities in sports, with a particular focus on migrants.
