–2012): origins, evolution and projections

Description

The Olympic Games is recognised worldwide as the largest sports mega-event - certainly, the event attracting the largest amount of media coverage globally. As well as a sports event, the Olympics are a cultural phenomenon, with a history spanning more than 100 years and supported by a global network of organisations with an educational and intercultural remit that defines itself as a Movement and aspires to promote Olympism as a 'philosophy of life', headed by the International Olympic Committee. What is less known is that the Games also incorporate 100 years of Olympic cultural and arts programming and that such experience is playing a growing role defining or contributing to respective host cities' cultural policies. This paper offers an overview of the cultural dimension of the Olymp

Understanding Olympic tourism flows

Description

The Olympic and Paralympic Games provide few direct tourism benefits outside the host city. 1- How valuable and useful are pre-Games predictions of Olympic tourism impacts that might take place? 2- Does it matter that the host city gets tourism benefits, but the rest of the host country often loses out? 3- How can Games hosts be persuaded to measure and account for negative and neutral tourism impacts?

Paralympic narratives- perceptions of disability
