Project description

The aim of this project is to undertake primary research and stage a series of Multiplier Sport Events (MSEs) 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). Project partners (in addition to the Asser Institute) are: the Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium), the University of Rijeka (Croatia), the Universidad Carlos III Madrid (Spain), Ecole Superiore des Sciences Commerciales d’Angers Association (France), and the Macedonian NGO TAKT (Together Advancing Common Trust). Associate partner is the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport (EPAS) from the Council of Europe.

Participating Asser researcher is Antoine Duval. The project receives financial support under the EU’s Erasmus+ Programme (Collaborative Partnerships).
