Project Description

In this second mini-podcast episode, I lay out key concepts and provide brief overviews of important history for the casual listener. I rely on a journal article in the New Zealand International Review as well as a case study of the British Sports Council's review of South Africa’s segregation to inform these definitions. From here, I lay out the Cold War context that made the sports diplomacy of South Africa relevant in international politics, informed by the book, Beyond Boycotts: Sport During the Cold War in Europe, edited by: Philippe Vonnard, Nicola Sbetti and Grégory Quin.
