The 5th Symposium of the International Chair in Olympism,
held at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland from November 14-16, 2002,
was devoted to the legacy of the Olympic Games from 1984 to 2000.
The symposium was organized by the Olympic and Sport Studies Center of
the Autonomous University of Barcelona and the IOC Olympic Studies Center.
The Olympic legacy is a very important subject with immense ramifications to the world
and the hosting cities. The modern Olympics, in their more than 100-year-old history,
offer rich content for social, economic, and political studies.
The modern Olympics retain many of the disciplines that the ancient Games enjoyed.
It is fortunate that the international community has embraced these noble principles
and is dedicated to preserving them in the continuation of the Olympic games.
The Symposium, which explored the various aspects of the Olympic legacy, dealt with eight different themes:
Understanding the Olympic legacy and its historical development
The urban and environmental legacy of the Olympic Games
The sporting legacy of the Olympic Games
Olympic economic and tourism legacies
Political legacies of the Olympic Games
Cultural, social, and communication legacies
Olympic education and documentation legacy
Organizing and planning the future Olympic legacy
This Symposium brought together experts in the organization and research of the Olympic games.
Participants were given the opportunity to present papers during the communication sessions.
