Abstract

Focusing on mega events in South Africa, China and Brazil, this paper contrasts and critiques the associated image and identity opportunities and risks, as well as comparative motivations for hosting such events. In the context of an increasing number of mega events being hosted in the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), the paper provides broader continuity and introduces a broader research agenda. - (AJC)
