New Papers on Sports Diplomacy
The latest issue of Sport in Society focuses on “Sport and Diplomacy” and explores the interrelationship between international sports and diplomatic studies since they both have a global public dimension to them that can be systematized. The issue features eight articles including:
- Sport and Relational Public Diplomacy: the case of New Zealand and Rugby World Cup 2011 by Anthony Deos
- It is a Squad Game: Manchester United as a diplomatic non-state actor in international affairs by J. Simon Rofe
- Public Diplomacy, international News Media and London 2012: cosmopolitanismTM by M.R.G. Pope
- Mapping the Relationship between International Sport and Diplomacy by Stuart Murray & Geoffrey Allen Pigman
This volume focuses on the interrelationships between international sport and diplomacy. Eight papers paint a picture of these relationships by considering a range of sports (football, rugby, tennis, speed skating), international sporting institutions (IOC, FIFA, RFU), events (Olympics, Rugby World Cup, Football World Cup, UEFA Champions League, Commonwealth Games, Grand Slam tennis tournaments) and nations (UK, Romania, New Zealand, Australia). At the same time, the papers address a wide range of contemporary diplomatic actors (national governments, cities, international sporting federations, transnational firms, transnational social groups) and functions or processes (representation, communication, multi-level diplomacy, public diplomacy, celebrity diplomacy).
