Call for Papers | “Transgressing Boundaries: Migration and Sport”, a SiNAFE Conference | March 3-4, 2023, at Istanbul Bilgi University. Call ends January 31, 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. Sport is oftentimes cited as the perfect tool for upward mobility, and many young athletes attach their hopes and dreams to sport, particularly football, to ascend socially. Still, migrant athletes continue to suffer from social exclusion.
