This concluding chapter reflects on the themes that have been identified in the book and sets out some thoughts on those that relate to the future nexus of diplomacy and sport. It begins by revisiting, in light of arguments presented in this book, the reciprocal benefits of investigating international sport and researching the reconfiguration of diplomatic practice. From there, it focuses down on the key themes developed through the book; namely conceptual issues relating to diplomacy, patterns of public diplomacy and the sports boycott as a diplomatic tool. This forms the basis for an assessment of the trajectory of sport as a dimension of the diplomatic framework. Drawing on the analysis contained in this book, what this concluding chapter captures is the increasingly entangled relationship between sport and diplomacy, where sport can itself be considered a diplomatic act, in the contexts, for example, of interest representation and mediation. In this sense the book has explored the rebalancing of their relations in a number of different spatial and temporal arenas.
