Sports and Politics

Ida Ali-Lindqvist is a freelance journalist engaged with issues concerning equality and justice. She will hold a lecture about the relationship between sports and politics and why it is so important to see the link between the two. The subject became widely debated when athletes expressed their criticism about the Russian gay legislation during the world championship in Moscow earlier this year. Now, we turn our heads towards the Olympics in Sotji in February and wonder if political opinions will, or even ought to, be expressed?
