Seminar on EU Sport Diplomacy: Perspectives of Cooperation with International Organisations

When: 26 November 2019

Venue: European Youth Centre, Plenary room 0.1
30, rue Pierre de Coubertin, Strasbourg

This seminar is the third of five international events organised by the ERASMUS+ project “Promoting a Strategic Approach to EU Sport Diplomacy” (EUSD), which follows up on the work and recommendations of the High-Level Group on Sport Diplomacy set up by Commissioner Tibor Navracsics in 2015-2016. The project, which is co-ordinated by Edge Hill University (UK), started in January 2019 and is due to conclude in December 2020. It brings together partners from Spain (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid), Belgium (Université Catholique de Louvain), Croatia (University of Rijeka), the Netherlands (TMC Asser Institute), North Macedonia (the TAKT “Together Advancing Common Trust” NGO), and France (ESSCA School of Management). The Council of Europe’s Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport (EPAS) is an associate partner of the project.

Following on from the conferences held in Zagreb (June 2019) and Madrid (September 2019), the Strasbourg event is expected to explore how the European Union can, in the field of sport and sport diplomacy, develop meaningful relations with international organisations, specifically the Council of Europe, represented by the EPAS which has kindly accepted to host the event.

Registration is now closed.
