No borders. Quando lo sport è strategia di policy per un rinnovato welfare
No borders. When sport is a policy strategy for renewed welfare
Recent years saw an increase, both in Italy and in the rest of Europe, in activities put in practise in order to use sports as means for facilitating the social inclusion of migrants and/or asylum seekers. The importance of social inclusion has been frequently analysed from reference models related to several welfare systems dimensions used to convey sports values. The aim of this paper was to analyse some of the accomplished sports projects, not only as playful and recreational activities but also as useful examples for inclusion and for expanding and creating welfare strategies. Therefore, the main question was whether sports may act as a drive for facilitating inclusion and foster well-being. Sociological imagination will acquire then a strategic role in interpreting community contexts.
