Sport and social inclusion
This evaluation research project aims to provide better understanding of participation in sport activities among people with a minority background in Finland. Specifically, the purpose is to investigate the impact of participation in sport activities on immigrant women`s wellbeing and their acculturation process. This is done by recording and analyzing their subjective experiences. In addition, the aim is to evaluate if and how inclusion is taken into consideration and supported in the organizational structures and practices in 30 Finnish municipalities.
The evaluation research project has been assigned and funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture in Finland.
