Insurgent Citizenship in Brazil: the Role of Mega Sports Events

Lead researcher: Einar Braathen, Norwegian Institute for Urban and Regional Research (NIBR)

This project seeks to reach a deeper understanding of the encounters between citizens (communities) and mega sports events in Brazil. The main question asked in the project is: To what extent, and how, do international mega sports events spur citizens' social and political mobilizations? The additional question is: How do these mobilizations consequently set the quality of citizenship on the public agenda in the host city/country?
