Rethinking Sports and Integration offers a critical cultural analysis of the idea that sport can promote the integration of migrants and their descendants. It examines the origins of this idea and the concept of integration, and analyzes the problems in focus, the methods applied and the results of sports-related integration programmes.

The text also redefines sports-related integration with perspectives from migration studies that highlight the super-diversity within migrant groups, and explore the various ways in which transnational connections influence participation in sport within migrant communities.

This book is important reading for students and researchers working in sport development, sport policy or migration studies, as well as a valuable resource for sports governing bodies, policymakers and project workers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"...delivers a detailed and comprehensive explanation and critique on sports-related integration concepts and policies. {...} Rethinking Sport and Integrationis an important addition to the literature on sport research related to migration and integration. Agergaard draws extensively from various perspectives and case studies, as well as from adjacent fields such as race, ethnicity, sports and migration studies to support her contentions. She further presents a solid conceptual and theoretically informed framework to re-examine the issues pertaining to policies and initiatives that are established to promote integration through and in sport."
