Abstract

This article problematises the increasing involvement of non-state actors (in particular Danish civil sports associations) in the conduct of integration policy. Based on a case study the article describes how the involved public authorities and non-state actors represent the problem (and aim) of enhancing ethnic integration through sports. The concept of assemblage is used to highlight the heterogeneity of the rationalities and resources that merged in the specific project. Further, the techniques and practices of governing the specific project will be in focus and the article discusses how non-state actors come to monitor themselves through new public management.
