The conference examines the process of discrimination, within educational and sport institutions. Our aim is to understand the discrimination, not only as the product of a process, but as a process in itself. The aim is to use a multidisciplinary approach to consider this word in its entirety. The symposium subthemes are:

  1. Discrimination as a political and scientific concept
  2. The experience of discrimination
  3. The process of regulating the discrimination
  4. The social cost of discrimination

The aim of this symposium is to bring together researchers and professionals who are working on this theme or are confronted with the discrimination in school or sport context. The symposium is designed to maximise opportunities for intellectual exchange amongst researchers, sport scientists, professionals and the general public.
