Challenging the British Asian football exclusion
The second event in the Leeds Cultural Conversations series 2018/19.
Presented by Dr Dan Kilvington.
Football appears to be a meritocratic space. However, this talk, which draws on the oral testimonies of British Asian football communities will demonstrate that systemic racism, overt racism, racio-cultural stereotypes and a lack of role models have excluded British Asians from the game. The talk will explain how my research works towards achieving inclusion by developing policy recommendations and a coaching initiative.
