Abstract [en]

This article analyzes how representatives of two sports-based interventions in Sweden conceptualize the ways in which differentforms of social relations facilitate social inclusion and integration. The articulated statements are analyzed from a discursive andgovernmentality perspective. The analysis spotlights how sports practices ideally provide inclusive and bridging meetings betweenschools and children from different areas, and how bonding relations with formative role-models make it possible to reach out toyoung people in the community and to facilitate learning, guidance and social change according to certain norms. However, bondingrelations between children from the same area are not spotlighted in discourse. This, and other discursive effects, are problematizedwith respect to how such discourse restrains and limits the conditions for the social inclusion and integration of the targeted youth.
