dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this chapter is to describe the social impacts and legacies expected for Rio de Janeiro as the Brazilian city prepares to host the 2016 Olympic Games. The analysis is focused on four aspects: urban regeneration, people displacement, sport participation and nationalism. These are some of the claims used by sporting mega-events proponents (government and elite groups) to justify the public spending on the spectacle.en_UK
