Sport and Geopolitics

Whether used as a way to exert influence or as an economic, political, or even cultural tool, sport has become a key component of international relations. Through its Sport Programme, IRIS provides insight and analysis into the growing impact of international sport. The Institute carries out work in this field on behalf of French, European Union and international sports bodies.
