The International Olympic Committee and the Olympic system : the governance of world sport / Jean-Loup Chappelet and Brenda Kübler-Mabbott

Chappelet, Jean-Loup | Kübler-Mabbott, Brenda

Edited by Routledge. London - 2008

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is one of the most important organisations in world sport and one of the most significant non-state actors in world politics. Everybody knows the Olympic Games but few are familiar with the organisation and the system that has enabled the Games go on from Olympiad to Olympiad for more than a hundred years. This book analyses what makes this system work and whether it will survive in the 21st century considering the major changes that have taken place in sport over recent decades. Subjects covered include: A brief overview of the Olympic System; the International Olympic Committee (IOC); The National Olympic Committees and the International Sports Federations; The Olympic Games and their Organising Committees; and, Major problems of the Olympic System.
