Sports diplomacy from PyeongChang 2018 to Gangwon 2024: Inter-Korean communication and collaboration through sport mega-events

About this event

The Moray House School of Education and Sport at the University of Edinburgh will host an international symposium on North and South Korean relations at sports mega-events. In the interim period between the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang and the 2024 Youth Winter Olympics in Gangwon, invited speakers at the symposium will discuss the roles and limitations of the Olympic Games in facilitating inter-Korean collaboration and promoting peace in the Korean Peninsula.

While this symposium has a specific regional focus, research presentations and academic discussions at this event will cover various theoretical and topical issues concerning global sport, diplomacy and geopolitics. Scholars and students whose research interests lie in sport, politics and international relations may find this academic event particularly interesting.
