Intercultural Dialogue and Integration of Migrants through Sport. Experiences in the Campania Region
MetadataShow full item record
Sport is considered a tool to ease intercultural dialogue and integration of migrants in the hosting countries. Sports activities have great potentialities, but the participation of foreigners and the impact of athleticism on their integration are limited by some barriers. In Campania some attempts to favour the integration through sport have been promoted in recent years by associations and groups of citizens. Among the most successful projects are the football teams Afro-Napoli United, Rfc Lions Ska and Atletico Brigante and the basketball club Tam Tam. These projects have largely succeeded in involving the migrants and promoting their integration, but they also met some obstacles which limited their impact.
