Sports as Diplomacy: Sports, Empire, and "Ireland"

Joseph Maguire, Katie Liston

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Drawing on their work in Diplomacy and Statecraft (2016),
Liston and Maguire examine the emergence of the British Empire
Games, from 1930 to 1938, the precursor to today’s Commonwealth
Games. They draw on the case of Ireland to illustrate how participation
in the Games exemplified the growing role of sports as diplomacy and
as an instrument of diplomacy within the British Empire. Using the past
as an aid to understanding the present, Liston and Maguire consider
the possibility of Ireland’s reentry into the Commonwealth Games, set
in the context of sports and diplomacy today, the unsettled status of
the United Kingdom and the consequences of Brexit, including questions
of international sports representation and national identity politics.
