Sport and Politics


Sport and Politics – A*CR London Open Meeting.

Discussion introduced by Dave Kellaway.

You just can’t keep politics out of sport! The taking the knee against racism by players at the Euros football had a huge impact. At the Olympics, nationalist fervour is whipped up when a gold medal is won. It is time to reflect on the Olympics and sport in generaland their ideological meaning and function today.
