Beyond inclusion: opportunity structures in sports for all in Sweden

2023 (English)In: The Palgrave handbook of disability sport in Europe: policies, structures and participation / [ed] Caroline van Lindert; Jeroen Scheerder; Ian Brittain, Cham: Palgrave Macmillan, 2023, 1, p. 169-192Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this chapter, we discuss the key structural and historical conditions of disability sport in Sweden and the knowledge gaps and unanswered questions that warrant further research and development. We provide a contextual description of how sport for persons with disabilities (PWD) is organised to contribute to an increased understanding of opportunities and limitations to inclusion and equal conditions for sports participation. This chapter draws on previous research and information based on statistics, national governing documents and Swedish legislation. Overall, this chapter informs policy and practice aimed at enhancing PWD’ access to sports and physical activity and provides the information necessary to begin to create sports environments supportive of the success of all their members. We believe that the information in this chapter will be helpful for scholars who are pursuing new and important areas for future sport and disability research. The insights presented could be used to inform existing and future sports-based programmes and interventions to strengthen their conceptual foundation, design, processes, equity and impact. This chapter could also be helpful for practitioners and decision-makers who work with inclusion in sport within and outside the sports movement, not least at the municipal level, where many important and crucial decisions are made regarding finances and accessibility.
