Corporate Games

The Corporate Games briefing examines the shady business of the International Olympic Committee and the corporate sponsors of the Olympics, as well as examining the effects of the games on ground, from local ecology to gentrification, from increases in border control to surveillance. It also looks at case studies of resistance to the Olympics in different cities and the new International Counter Olympics Network (ICON).
