Sterkenburg, J. van, Janssens, J., & Rijnen, B. (2005). Football and racism: an inventory of the problems and solutions in eight West European countries in the framework of the stand up speak up campaign. Nieuwegein: Arko Sports Media.
At the beginning of 2005 the famous football player Thierry Henry kicked off a new European campaign against racism in football: Stand Up Speak Up. As part of this campaign, Henry's personal sponsor Nike has marketed millions of black and white wristbands bearing the campaign slogan. These wristbands are not just intended to give the right-minded and silent masses, who want nothing to do with racism, a voice. This campaign also intends to raise money to sponsor projects and initiatives that prevent and combat racism. The King Baudouin Foundation has been appointed by Nike to allocate the funds. The Mulier Institute has been commissioned to conduct further research into this issue in a number of West European countries. The results of this research are laid down in this book.
