BFPG at Big Tent Ideas Festival

Big Tent Ideas Festival – Sport & Diplomacy (Mihir Bose, Author; Dr Sarah Zipp, University of Sterling; Stuart Meaker, Surrey and England Cricketer)

Our second panel at the Big Tent Ideas Festival explored the role that sport and sports players can play in UK diplomacy and how best the UK can harness its soft power reserves to boost its international standing. Bringing together the journalist and author Mihir Bose (Chair), Dr Sarah Zipp of the University of Sterling, and Stuart Meaker, Surrey and England Cricketer, the discussion explored these questions and what impact Brexit will have on Britain’s position as a ‘Soft Power Superpower’.
