About this book | Table of contents | About the authors | Buy now
The first text to fully explore the issue of ownership and governance of international events. Split onto two distinct parts of ‘Theory’ and ‘Cases’, it presents cases from sports as well as non-sports events, in addition to general principles regarding ownership and governance based on historical, legal and managerial considerations.

Ownership and Governance of International Events explores these events as global common goods owned by communities of participants, be they athletes, spectators, visitors, tourists, fans, media consumers, local residents and their required partnership between public authorities (at local, regional and national levels) and private bodies (NGOs and commercial organisations). It argues that this perspective of an event as a ‘common good’ helps mega events to be better sustained over the long run and facilitates their acceptability by local residents and wider public opinion.

Part of the Event Management Theory and Methods Series. This series examines the extent to which mainstream theory is being employed to develop event-specific theory, and to influence the very core practices of event management and event tourism. They introduce the theory, show how it is being used in the events sector through a literature review, incorporate examples and case studies written by researchers and/or practitioners, and contain methods that can be used effectively in the real world.
With online resource material, this mix-and-match collection is ideal for lecturers who need theoretical foundations and case studies for their classes, by students in need of reference works, by professionals wanting increased understanding alongside practical methods, and by agencies or associations that want their members and stakeholders to have access to a library of valuable resources. Series editor: Donald Getz PhD., Professor Emeritus, University of Calgary, Canada.
