SENTRY Sport project aims to develop a common methodology for the surfacing, prevention and mitigation of the discriminatory phenomenon in the places of sport and beyond, based on the role grassroots sport can play in tackling discriminations and support victims.
Sports places are frequented by many potential victims of discrimination (based on origins, religion, colour of the skin, etc.) and many discriminatory acts take place right in the sports world.
As the discriminatory phenomenon is "under-reported", many victims do not receive support, and no mediation actions are undertaken. Sport operators and other professionals of the sports sector can play an important role (as "Sentries" of discriminations) in the surfacing of the phenomenon, giving support to victims, orienting them and shaping conflict mediation actions.
Design, diffusion and endorsement of the "SENTRY Sport" systemic approach to tackle and prevent discriminations and to support victims by developing a system of territorial "Sentries" rooted it in the places of sport.
