The preparation of Italian cities to host the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics is giving rise to many criticisms of urban development and redevelopment carried out in preparation for these events. This paper illustrates and discusses the impacts of these mega events on the city of Rio de Janeiro within the conceptual framework of David Harvey’s theories. An illustration is given of how and on the basis of which approaches clearance processes have been and continue to be carried out at the expense of the most vulnerable groups in the population. They are being carried out as part of urban development projects currently in progress. It is shown that in addition to being clear violations of fundamental human rights, these processes are also opening the way to urban planning dynamics which involve new and questionable relationships between the various social agents involved and an increasingly greater impact of market forces.
Keywords: The right to housing; major sports events; clearance processes
