Panel Discussion Sport Diplomacy and Sport as a Phenomenon in the Middle East

29.5, 29 May 2024 5pm | Filozofická fakulta Univerzity Karlovy, Faculty of Arts Charles University | Jiří Zákravský | Vojtěch Ondráček

We invite you to a free continuation of the topic SPORT in the Arab world. Join the panel and discuss current events in the field of sport in the Middle East. In addition to sport as a societal phenomenon that drives regional and global events, you will also learn what sports diplomacy is and its role in the geopolitical context. Through sport, cultural and political-geographical barriers are overcome, relations between different Arab states are built, and international politics are influenced. The role of sport in diplomacy and its importance for social change in the Middle East will be discussed, as well as football fields and the role of women in the discipline of sports negotiation:

Ilona Burgrová - former national basketball player and chairwoman of the Commission for Equal Opportunities in Sport of the Czech Olympic Committee.
Vojtěch Ondráček - sports sociologist and author of the podcast Outsider
Jiří Zákravský - expert on sports diplomacy and cycling

Moderated by Klára Šubíková

The event will be held in Czech and is part of the 14th edition of the Arab Culture Festival.

The discussion will be filmed and by attending the event you agree to be recorded on video.

We would like to thank the Faculty of Philosophy of Charles University and the Department of Middle Eastern Studies of Charles University for their support.
