Here is our first episode in the Global Sport Conversations Podcast Series. A collaborative project between: the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy, the Japan Research Centre, the Centre for Media and Film Studies and SOAS Radio. All proudly funded by the Research and Enterprise Office Seedcorn Initiative.
The purpose of this podcast series is to explore, with industry and academic experts, the role sport has played in their lives and professional practices. It is an exciting opportunity for a variety of voices and multiple interpretations of the leading question: where does sport fit in global diplomacy?
The first interview is with Aziyadé Poltier-Mutal, who is the Head of the Perception Change Project, in the Office of the Director General at the United Nations. Aziyadé speaks to Verity about the upcoming United Nations and UEFA Match for Solidarity; an insight into the relationship between the United Nation and the International Olympic Committee; and finally her own experiences and career development.
If you are interested in the locations, structures and voices involved in sport, development and peace on a global scale… then this podcast is must listen!
