Asian Cup Politics: more than just a game

Asian Cup Politics: more than just a game

By James M. Dorsey

Kuwait may have scored the first goal against Australia in the opening match of the Asian Cup but when the match ended 4:1 in favour of the Australian hosts the message was not simply a defeat on the pitch. It highlighted the importance and the impact of Middle Eastern politics on the region’s game.

In a world in which diplomacy has expanded from government-to-government contacts into public and cultural…

By James M. Dorsey

Israeli raid on Palestinian soccer club signals dangerous hardening of Israeli-Palestinian battle lines

By James M. Dorsey

A soccer brawl in Israel’s politically most loaded derby and an alleged subsequent raid by the Israeli military on the offices of the Palestinian soccer association reflects a hardening of the Israeli-Palestinian divide as Israel debates legislation that would emphasize the Jewish national rather than the democratic nature of the state – a move that would effectively deprive Israeli Palestinians of their identity as both Israelis and Palestinians as well as of their…

Understanding Technology in the Context of Social Good: Reflections on the Social Good Summit

Social good can be pursued through many different avenues.  One such avenue, is through technology.  In the context of today's Social Good Summit, technology was a theme that was interwoven throughout the day's talks.  However, an important nuance that the Summit did not address was the distinction between technology as a tool in raising awareness, technology as a tool of empowerment, and technology for social justice.  



In this regard, a myriad of issues from child marriage to…
