Olympic Risks, Hardback Book


An exploration of how the Olympics are organised in response to risk.

This book looks at the tension between the riskiness of mega-events, attributable to their scale and complexities, and the societal, political and organisational pressures that exist for safety, security and management of risk - leading to changes in how the Games are governed.
