The Diplomatic Power of Sport

This week's PD News headlines explored the use of sports in public diplomacy. Members of the U.S. National Football League will visit Israel next week and play an exhibition game against Israel’s national team, while U.S. wrestlers were banned from competing in the World Cup in Iran in response to President Trump's travel ban. Other stories looked at Scotland's potential for sports diplomacy, and Budweiser's nod to the immigration debate in its Super Bowl commercial.
