The 2020 Olympics and Paralympic games were postponed for the first time in history due to the coronavirus. But, Japan is committed to the games in the summer of 2021. It is a powerful reminder of the importance countries attach to hosting and participating in international sporting events. Some questions to consider:
- Olympics – A success for Japan and government or disaster?
- Olympics – A mass participant event? Any spectators?
- Olympics – Generate good will or demonstrations?
- Olympics – Boycott of Beijing?
Join the Crossley Center for Public Opinion Research and the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies for a conversation on value, importance and impact of the Olympics and international sports on foreign policy.
Leading foreign policy experts from the Korbel School and from Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan will provide analyses on what the games mean for countries, athletes and the world. The program will be moderated by FLOYD CIRULI, director of the Crossley Center.
