SUPPO, Hugo. Reflections on the place of sport in international relations. Contexto int. [online]. 2012, vol.34, n.2, pp.397-433. ISSN 0102-8529.

The classic works in the discipline of International Relations virtually ignore the issue of sport. Most studies on the relationship between sport and international relations were produced by scholars of sport or historians of international relations, usually without a explicit theoretical framework, using descriptive approaches and empirical and normative proposals at best. Only recently has this "negligence" of sports by International Relations specialists, even among those authors that take in consideration relevant cultural factors in their analyses, begun to wane. This article critically examines the main recent issues relating to the ties between sport and international relations, their implications and the prospects for future research on the subject.

Keywords : Sports; International Relations; Culture; International Relations Theory; History of International Relations.
