Advancing International Engagement and Co-operation through Sport

Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Professor Grant Jarvie will be talking about how sports diplomacy can be used as a ‘toolbox’ to help achieve policy aims (for example, to contribute towards achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals). Crucially he will suggest and evidence that sport is a pillar of connectivity that can help with international engagement. Sport currently has an international mandate that gives it a lever to enable change. He will offer fresh perspectives on how sport diplomacy approaches could be applied more effectively to meet the challenges of a post Brexit and post Covid world. He will use the evidence from the report and one other Celtic nation to illustrate the points being made.
