Mega events: opportunities for strategic global leadership or vehicles of domestic political legitimacy?

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Leaders of global sporting bodies are awarding major sporting events on an agenda of inclusion, social and
economic development, and emotion. Drawing on research in international and national events policy within a
range of governance arrangements, the paper asserts that major events are now a public policy tool. The presenters
will assert that as event owners consider awarding events more widely, sporting and cultural events need to
be re-evaluated as a force for good—whereby event owners can now contribute positively to a growing global
consciousness.
