Abstract

In June 2012, a major conference on sport, race and ethnicity took place in Belfast,Northern Ireland. Aside from its academic content, the conference was significanton on a number of levels. These included the context in which discussions took place,the fact that the meeting was staged on the eve of the first Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games in London for 50 years and also that it came at the close of the2011/12 season in the English Premier League (EPL), which was defined in part by a series of high-profile incidents relating to the issue of race. Combined, these three factors created a rich academic backdrop in which matters of identity, marginalization,discrimination, racism and division predominated.1 The articles contained within this collection emerge from a group of scholars who presented at the conference,and their work in turn reflects a range of contemporary issues pertaining to race and ethnicity across Europe, Africa and the USA.
