This 100 + page review of the strategies required to build a safe, secure delivery of a Mega Sports event is a valuable resource for any City, Council or Country organising a Mega Sports event.
Though not a simple read this book covers all the bases which need attention in the multi-sectoral responses required by hosting any Mega Sporting event. Originally a commissioned piece for the charity Legatum Institute, this report stands independently as the first of a series of reports emerging from the Think and Research Tank CCARHT.
Written in 2011 this report presages by 4 years the Transparency in the Supply Chain legislation which the UK government introduced into supply chain management in the Modern Slavery Act in 2015. Now a couple of Olympics later, this first comprehensive overview of what works in the mitigation of risk for countering trafficking in Mega Sports delivery, has stood the test of time. For any politician, police investigator, local councillor with a bid in the offing, NGO researcher, or mega sports organiser, this should be required reading. Also of interest to any who love to have Mega Sports come to town, and who want to understand the wider impacts of hosting.
