In today's global sports world, the intersection of sport and diplomacy has become an everyday phenomenon. Sport has immense power, but it serves the greatest purpose when it is used to unify peoples across cultures and communities in order to better understand each other–an outcome that diplomacy also seeks to achieve.
Join us for a morning of deep discussion regarding the different approaches to global sport leadership and the use of sport as a key element of soft power/public diplomacy.[JB emphasis]. Two informative roundtables will be anchored by an enlightening keynote address.
CO-HOSTS

Vince Gennaro, Associate Dean and Clinical Associate Professor
NYUSPS Preston Robert Tisch Institute for Global Sport
Sylvère-Henry Cissé, Chairman, Sport & Démocratie
AGENDA
ROUNDTABLE 1: THE POWER OF COMMUNICATION IN GLOBAL SPORT
As the world of sports continues to globalize, the role of communications, including Internet and social media, has become ever-more important and powerful in helping to bridge cultural divides. It has served to unify fans, players, and/or officials in new ways across geographic boundaries. The fight for more equitable—if not equal—pay in womens' sports, and advocating for greater social justice, are just two examples of the ways in which global communications are transforming our sports realities, as are the people-to-people cultural exchanges that occur daily as athletes, staff, and fans interact with each other. They illustrate how events and actions in one country, influence discourse and actions in others through global sport.

Mega events such as the Olympic Games and the World Cup present unique opportunities for sports diplomacy on a global stage.
