Brazil is currently considered one of those countries which are driving the world economy. Affected by processes of socioeconomic upgrading in recent years, today it is now at a point where it is experiencing expectations of further growth as a result of carefully formulated policies, which have allowed millions of individuals and families to rise out of poverty over the last decade and which have made the formation of a new middle class possible. It is in this context that the country has succeeded in attracting two major world sports events, the Football World Cup in 2014 in twelve Brazilian cities and the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The section which follows consists of six papers and discusses the rationale behind that decision and its more critical implications.
Keywords: Brazilian socio-economic development; Rio de Janeiro; inequalities
