FURD to host anti-discrimination conference, Sheffield, 8th-10th February 2002

FURD, in partnership with the FARE (Football Against Racism in Europe) network, is hosting a European conference on anti-discimination in sports and football in Sheffield from 8th-10th February. The objectives of the conference are:

- to identify and raise awareness of the recurring problems of racism, xenophobia and anti-religious discrimination (anti-semitism, sectarianism, Islamophobia) in football

- to link the fight against racism with the fight against discrimination based on gender and/or sexual orientation

- exchange of good practice, information and educational materials

- to raise the capacity of grass-roots organisations to become pro-active against discrimination on a local level

The conference is aimed particularly at fan-groups, anti-racist football initiatives, migrant organisations and other anti-discrimination groups, but researchers, football associations, clubs and players' unions may wish to attend.

If you are interested in attending this conference, or would like more information, please email the conference organiser Lisa Sultanti or telephone 00 44 114 2553156.
