Project description

The aim of this project is to undertake primary research and stage a series of Multiplier Sport Events (MSE) to support EU priorities in the area of sport diplomacy. The project will help the EU adopt a strategic approach to sport diplomacy and provide evidence of instances where sport can help amplify key EU diplomatic messages and help forge better diplomatic relations with third countries.

The project is led by Edge Hill University (represented by Professor Richard Parrish) and the project partners are the TMC Asser Institute, the Universidad Carlos III Madrid, The University of Rijeka, Faculty of Law, ESSCA, Université Catholique de Louvain and the Macedonian NGO TAKT (Together Advancing Common Trust). Associate partner is the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport (EPAS) from the Council of Europe.

This project received financial support under the EU’s Erasmus+ Programme (Collaborative Partnerships).
