Can we blame it on Rio ? / Christopher Gaffney

Gaffney, Christopher

As Rio de Janeiro begins its post‐Olympic era it shows signs of multiple crises: governance, fiscal stress, security, decaying (yet recently built) infrastructure, and the quotidian traumas of a violent and exclusionary urbanism. This article will examine some of these issues as they relate explicitly to Rio's hosting of a decade‐long cycle of mega‐events that began with the Pan American Games in 2007, followed by the 2011 World Military Games, the UN Rio+20 Environmental Conference, 2013 Catholic World Youth Congress, 2013 FIFA Confederations' Cup, 2014 FIFA World Cup, and ending with the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.
