Impact and Legacy of the Olympic Games: Barcelona’92

Since the celebration of the Barcelona’92 Olympic Games, the CEO-UAB has undertaken and supported a large number of research projects on the impact of the Barcelona Olympic Games.

Between 1992 and 1995, work was done on the research project entitled Global Television and the Olympic Games: The Barcelona'92 Experience, which analysed the role of international television networks in the Olympic Games through the Barcelona experience. In addition, the CEO-UAB has supported several research projects conducted by collaborating researchers. Among the most significant ones are the study on the economic impact of the Olympic Games undertaken by Ferran Brunet, the study on the impact and cultural dimensions of Barcelona'92’s Olympic symbology undertaken by Jordi Busquet, and the study on the image of Catalonia in the international press undertaken by Muriel Ladrón de Guevara and Javier Cóller.

Regarding studies on the impact and legacy of the Olympic Games, the CEO-UAB has promoted the publication of two books analysing the different impacts of the Olympic Games. The first, The Keys to Success: the social, sporting, economic and communications impact of Barcelona’92 (1995) offers a short-term perspective, and the second, Barcelona: l’herència dels Jocs 1992-2002 (2002), offers a view of the impacts from a 10-year perspective.
