Passing on the torch : urban governance, mega-event politics and failed Olympic bids in Oslo and Stockholm / Alexander Paulsson, Jens Alm

Paulsson, Alexander | Alm, Jens

The aim of the study is to explore why the cities of Oslo and Stockholm – capitals in countries which are scoring high on various democracy indexes - choose to withdraw their Olympics bids. This is explored by drawing upon literature on urban governance and the politics of mega-events. Through analyzing and comparing the urban governance and decision-making processes in both cases, the writers suggest that it is possible to understand why cities in ‘democratic’ countries chose to withdraw from process.
