Save the date! On Thursday 20th June 2013 (World Refugee Day), FURD will present the ‘Football: A Shared Sense of Belonging?’ research project final conference in Sheffield.
As part of the Big Lottery Research Programme, FURD has spent three years examining the role of football in the lives of refugees and asylum seekers.
This free conference represents the culmination of this process with the presentation of our findings and recommendations. We will be joined by leading academics and practitioners to help contextualise the role of sport within the wider dynamics of forced migration and the notion of belonging. Refugees and asylum seekers involved with the research will also provide more personal perspectives.
It will be particularly relevant to front line staff, students and academics with an interest in sport development, community cohesion or refugee support.
Further details will follow. Meanwhile, to reserve a place, or for more details, please contact FURD using the details at the top of this page.
