A social capital view of an Olympic and Paralympic Games bid exploration process / David J. Finch... [et al.]

Finch, David J.

The purpose of this study is to examine the Olympic and Paralympic bid exploration process adopted by Calgary, Canada (‘Calgary Model’) to explore whether it provides a template on how future communities could leverage bid exploration processes to generate social capital though increased network connectivity and community ownership. Guided by social capital theory, the researchers conducted 19 in-depth, one-on-one interviews with a sample of individuals engaged in the Calgary bid exploration process.
