The territorial and urban dimensions of the Summer Olympics: A review of publications (1984–2018)

Abstract

This article presents an exploratory research on the territorial and urban dimensions of the Summer Olympic Games (SOG) thanks to a large body of 434 articles published from 1984 to September 2018 in scientific journals. At a methodological level, the analytical induction approach allows, upstream of the collection, to define four research axis organizing the material then collected: attraction, production and evaluation of the SOG; urban project and the SOG; sports tourism and the SOG; territorial legacies of the SOG. The research object studied keeps a marginal position in the literature despite a clear growth over the last ten years, of published articles. Multi-thematic and often critical, the scientific production comes from journals relating to the fields of leisure, tourism and sport according to sociological and managerial approaches, then geographical, planning and historical. This first effort of knowledge synthesis is part of a more general framework of systematic review of literature in the process of formalization and aiming to deliver a detailed, longitudinal and, subsequently, regularly updated research report.
