Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Chair of Sport Sociology

Integration, Migration and Sport



The assumption that sport promotes immigrant integration is a widespread. It is often disregarded, however, that the social integration of immigrants, however, runs not always casually and automatically.

The Department for Sport Sociology analyzes how sport and especially sports clubs contribute to social integration. It  conducts research on integrative and disintegrative challenges of sport, exercise and leisure culture for people with an immigrant background, as the migrant second and third generation is denominated in Germany. In doing so the Department of Sport Sociology works closely with civil society and state actors.
