Sports Diplomacy: A Sport, Diplomacy, and Governance Hub

Open Access Resources

Sport is a key driver of globalization focusing attention on issues that transcend national boundaries. It’s a story fed by history, culture, race and identity, technology, business, international relations, and more, one that is also being shaped by topical debates and ethical issues of today’s news cycles. 

But in a rapidly changing global sports world, how do various stakeholders come to and interact with sports beyond the game? How do they experience the intersection of sports and diplomacy and governance? What are key take-aways from careers across the global sports spectrum that inform our understanding of our world today? These critical questions and more are the themes explored in our Global Sport Conversations Podcast series.
