Séminaire sur le diplomatie sportive en Europe
26/11/2019 / 14:00 - 17:30
The « Seminar on EU Sport Diplomacy: Perspectives of Cooperation with International Organisations » was 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 explored 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.
Carole Ponchon, our founder, took part the Seminar and offered her services to the newly appointed French Ambassador for Sport, Mrs Laurence Fisher. More to come on this promising topic on which Carole is a recognised expert.
