My PhD-research is on anti-Semitic hate speech among football supporters in the Netherlands. More specifically I focus on an educational project developed by Feyenoord and Anne Frank Stichting. As it is Feyenoord’s explicit ambition to eliminate anti-Semitic hate speech from their stadium, penalized supporters are invited to develop knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust through an educational programme. My PhD-research is on this educational programme; it’s opportunities and limitations. The overarching project title is Sport and Nation.
