The list is created as a result of the workshop organised under the
Researcher Links scheme offered within the Newton Fund, the British
Council and Fund de Amparo Pesquisa do Estado de Paulo - FAPESP
(2004/50504-8), in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil on 10-13th March, 2015.
The aim of the list of to connect researchers, policy makers and activists
interested in examining the complex range of sociocultural impacts that
arise from the design, management and legacy planning for mega sport
events. The impacts on local populations, spaces and community identities
are deeply interconnected with processes of social and political
transformation that occur via urban redevelopment and relocation, the
promotion of sport development to enhance social cohesion, tourism
development, and education, health and employment programs.
