Feasibility study of sport for development programming targeting refugees, migrants and host communities

PeacePlayers International and Laureus Sport for Good Foundation are seeking a consultant to conduct a feasibility study exploring how a long-term, sport-based intervention could support increased social cohesion, specifically through the positive integration of migrants and refugees within their host communities, in four key geographic areas: Germany, Greece, Turkey and France.

The study will be conducted over a period of six months beginning January 2018. Results of the study will inform the piloting of sport and social cohesion programming in targeted geographic locations during a two to three year period, followed by a larger-scale five-year program roll-out.

Organisational overview

Established in 2000, Laureus Sport for Good Foundation (Laureus) is a not for profit organisation that aims at using the power of sport to end violence, discrimination and disadvantage, proving that sport can change the world. Laureus targets six social focus areas: health, education, women & girls, employability, inclusive society and peaceful society, all of which are aligned with sections of the United Nations’ 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

Laureus supports sport for development programs which enhance the social and emotional development of children and young people in disadvantaged communities, reduce the impact of violence, conflict and discrimination in their lives, inspire healthy behavior change and increase educational achievements and employability skills. This support to more than 100 programs across 35 countries takes the shape of grants and technical assistance, which in combination delivers a comprehensive assistance to local partners in the communities we engage in.

Furthermore, Laureus invests in impact measurement, research and knowledge sharing to help strengthen and grow the wider sport for development sector. Laureus highlights serious social issues faced by children and young people and unlocks greater resources for the sector through effective advocacy and communications. Established in 2001, PeacePlayers International (PeacePlayers) is a peacebuilding not for profit organisation that uses sport as a vehicle to unite, educate and inspire young people living in divided communities. Based on the premise that “children who play together can learn to live together,” PeacePlayers has become a worldwide leader in the use of sport to build a more peaceful world, reaching more than 75,000 youth in 15 countries.
