“The goal of Olympism is to place sport at the service of the harmonious development of humankind, with a view to promoting a peaceful society concerned with the preservation of human dignity” (The Olympic Charter, p. 11)
Yet controversy often swirls around the Olympics as the Games confront commercialization, politicization, and commodification, sexism, racism, corruption, violence, and cheating. During this episode we welcome experts to examine issues concerning the games from the realms of economics, media, education, and human rights.
