Abstract

“Sport for Social Inclusion: Critical Analyses and Future Challenges” brings together a unique collection of papers on the
subject of sport and social inclusion. The special issue can be divided into three major parts. The first part consists of
three papers tacking on a broad perspective on sport and social exclusion, with specific attention to austerity policies,
sport-for-change and exclusion in youth sports. The second part of the special issue tackles specific themes (e.g., group
composition and dynamics, volunteering, physical education, youth work, equality, public health) and groups (e.g.,
people with disabilities, disadvantaged girls, youth) in society in relation to sport and social exclusion. The third part
consists of three papers that are related to issues of multiculturalism, migration and social inclusion. The special issue is
further augmented with a book review on Mike Collins and Tess Kay’s Sport and social exclusion (2nd edition) and a
short research communication. The editors dedicate the special issue to Mike Collins (deceased).
