Sports Diplomacy Through the PyeongChang Olympics

Wednesday, February 28 at 12:00pm to 1:30pm

USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, Room 207 3502 Watt Way

The PyeongChang Winter Olympics offers an opportunity for South Korea to present itself to the world and will also serve as an important platform for public diplomacy, given the regional instability. The Olympics' role in facilitating global and regional relations is particularly poignant, as future games—Tokyo's 2020 Summer Olympics and Beijing's 2022 Winter Olympics—will be hosted in the East Asian region.

CPD brings noted scholar Susan Brownell to discuss her experience in PyeongChang to examine the Olympics through the lens of sports diplomacy. This conversation will be moderated by Ben Carrington, associate professor at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism

This event is made possible by a grant by the Korea Foundation.
