Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] Sport as a tool for social inclusion has recently found spaces of strong attention and widespread use. This is witnessed by the increasing number of projects activated for this purpose (for an updated review, see the platform http://www.sportanddev.org), as well as the growing number of sector studies [Lawson, 2005; Levermore & Beacom, 2009; Hartmann & Kwauk, 2011; Schulenkorf, N., 2012; Schulenkorf et al, 2016]. From an analysis of the initiatives put in place, however, a lot of confusion emerges regarding the real aims pursued, the coherence of the proposed actions, and the evaluation devices to verify their effectiveness. The present contribution, in continuity with previously proposed works [see for example Sanchez and Gozzoli, 2010; Sanchez et al., 2013; Gozzoli et al., 2013], intends to highlight how sport can be a real and innovative tool at the service of social inclusion, highlighting some fundamental "methodological conditions". These conditions are proposed starting from a survey of the scientific literature on the subject and from the transversal analysis of recent intervention projects activated and developed with different territorial realities, projects that use sport as a tool to promote social inclusion of subjects at risk.
