Sports Diplomacy Roundtable Discussion

Sports play an important role in bridging divides throughout the world, including in the Arab region. They help people of all ages and walks of life learn to work together toward a common goal, play fairly by a set of agreed rules, and understand how to accept both victory and defeat. Moreover, sports can help Americans and Arabs exchange cultural values, improve understanding, develop empathy, and promote inclusion.

The Washington, D.C.-based National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations and the Riyadh-based King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies recently convened specialists from the United States and the Arab region for roundtable discussion on "Sports Diplomacy in the Middle East." Audio and video recordings of the program are available on YouTube, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and elsewhere.

The remaining Youth Leadership Development Program / Model Arab League conferences for the 2019-2020 Academic Year, including the National University and National High School programs, have been canceled.
