Various forms of feeling at home are created during and through sports activities but they are not equally accessible to everyone. In his inaugural lecture Ramón Spaaij discusses how these processes take shape in super-diverse urban districts. He draws attention to the downside of sports in the super-diverse city, with a particular focus on violence on and around the sports field.

Sports is a fruitful field for studying both social science and societal issues. Spaaij discusses the social and sociological meaning of sport and the claims government and policy make on sport externally. He will also present a research programme focusing on the social meaning of sport in the context of super-diverse cities. He approaches the discussion on social bonding and social cohesion in and through sport from the perspective of feeling at home.
