European Civil Dialogue in Sport
Journal n°21, by the Think tank Sport and Citizenship
The fight against doping and corruption was on the European sport Forum’s programme at Nicosia in mid September, and in thi journal you can see the main conclusions reached.
We think EU action in sport is justified for another reason: the need to reinvent a European sentiment today. The current crisis engenders tension and parochialism. Economic Europe is wavering, and with it the European project. Every four years, at the time of the Olympics, the idea of a single European delegation arises. However romantic (unrealistic?) this idea may be, it does least raise question about Europe and highlight unifying rather than divisive factors. Sport is definitely in the first category.
