Dear Colleagues,
 
I would like to draw your attention to our conference titled “Golden Games: Sport and Diplomacy in East Asia and Beyond”, taking place on 11-12 December 2017 at the Asia Research Institute (National University of Singapore) and the National Gallery of Singapore.
 
The conference has the broad aim to explore the relationship between sport and diplomacy at all levels since the early 20th century. In what ways has sport shaped diplomacy – and diplomacy shaped sport within the Asian realm? Is there something which distinguishes Asia, and/or Singapore’s sport and diplomacy? What is the relationship between sport, development, and peace in Asia? How does the media portray international sport? What is the extent of business interest in sport in the 20th and 21st century?
