Symposium: Brazil at the Centre of the Sporting World

Standard

Today, La Trobe University hosted an important symposium at its brand new City Campus, called: Brazil at the Centre of the Sporting World. This event was organised jointly by Centre for Sport and Social Impact (CSSI, of which I am a member) and the Institute of Latin American Studies (ILAS, administrated by our Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences), and included such luminaries as H. E. Rubem Barbossa (the Brazilian Ambassador to Australia) and Craig Foster (SBS Chief Football Analyst and Presenter).

I made a 15-minute presentation as part of panel discussion, based on my paper (now published, see link): “The Underdog Should Always Fire the First Salvo Against Brazil”, from Applied Economics Letters, which I have blogged about here previously.
