UPCOMING EVENT! STUDIUM GENERALE “SPORT AND DIPLOMACY” 6th DECEMBER 2018

Politics and sports or sports diplomacy describe the use of sport as a means to influence diplomatic, social, and political relations. Sports diplomacy may transcend cultural differences and bring people together.

The use of sports and politics has had both positive and negative implications over history. Sports competitions or activities have had the intention to bring about change in certain cases. Nationalistic fervor is sometimes linked to victories or losses to some sport in sports fields.

While the Olympics is often the biggest political example of using sports for diplomatic means, cricket and association football, as well as other sports in the global arena, have also been used in this regard. In the case of Apartheid, sport was used to isolate South Africa and bring about a major overhaul in the country’s social structure. While ethnicity and race can cause division, sports can also help blend differences.

On the subject of politics and current affairs, the IFI and Faculty of Law Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII) collaborate to conducted Studium Generale concerning “Sports & Diplomacy”. The event will take place in Ruang Sidang Utama 3rd Floor Faculty of Law Universitas Islam Yogyakarta on 6th December 2018 Started from 13:00-16:00 .
