Description

Sport, and olympism in particular, is known as a way to promote a culture of peace, social responsibility, understanding, and respect. The instrumental role of sport is best exemplified by the ancient Greek tradition of the Olympic Truce. The concept of the Olympic Truce was revived by the International Olympic Committee in the 90s and has since received backing from the UN. This session will reflect on the influence of sport in international relations, on the existing support framework for global observance of the Olympic Truce, and the ways it could be developed in the near future.
