Rio as an Olympic village, what for?
Speaker: Professor Ester Limonad
Why say yes to such events while many cities from developed countries say no. Is there any social benefit from this kind of event?
Favela 'pacification' in Olympic Rio de Janeiro: security for whom?
In this lecture, Sara Koenders will discuss the implications of recent mega-events for (the meaning of) Rio de Janeiro’s favelas. She will focus mainly on the favela “pacification” project, examining its different representations and practices.
