This course looks at the intersection of sports and politics in international relations and in the United States. Examples of political intervention in sports are numerous: African countries boycotted the 1976 Olympics in Montreal in protest of apartheid in South Africa; the United States did not participate in the 1980 Games in Moscow after the Soviet Union's invasion of Afghanistan; some Arab countries still refuse to compete with athletes from Israel in support of Palestine. Apart from governments, individual athletes also use sports as a political tool.

The renewable energy laws are still developing.
