Abstract

Sports activities play an important role in the social reproduction process of the marginalized inmigrant people. Sports can break this process and generate ‘bricolage’ in social relations. This kind of relations is present specially in some places where coexistence of people of different origins is a daily fact and specially among the young people. Finally, sports are useful to show failures and contraditions in some institutional approaches on social integration which do not take into account the limits of daily reality.

Keywords: “bricolage”, Marginalisation, Multiculturalism, Postmodernity, Social Reproduction.
