Promoting a Strategic Approach to EU Sports Diplomacy

Sports Diplomacy

TAKT is a partner of Erasmus + for the implementation of the three- year project “Promoting a Strategic Approach to EU Sports Diplomacy” aimed at preparing primary research and stage series of sporting events in order to support the EU’s priorities in the field of sports diplomacy. This 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. For example, the project examines how sport diplomacy projects in third states can, amongst other things, play a role in: combating violence, racism, discrimination and intolerance; encourage social inclusion and equal opportunities in sport; improve good governance in sport; encourage participation in sport and promote voluntary activity in sport.
Partners for this project are: Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium; Edge Hill University; TMC Asser Institute, Netherlands; TAKT; Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain; University of Rijeka, Faculty of Law, Croatia; ESSCA School of Management, France.
