CARVALHO, Claudio Oliveira de  and  RODRIGUES, Raoni Andrade. The Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games and the Exception Laws. Anu. Mex. Der. Inter [online]. 2017, vol.17, pp.41-63. ISSN 1870-4654.

Even before its completion, the Rio 2016 Olympic Games have brought many contradictions and ambiguities to their host city. While the promises of magnificent legacies have repercussions since the day that the massive sports event was announced, Rio de Janeiro has become an urban space of privatization and socio-spatial segregation. This study seeks to establish how this logic of elitism and predation of production in the city influence the creation of exception laws that eclipse legislative achievements, and how urban policy related to the Right to the City ends up being suppressed in this context of mega-events.

Keywords : Rio 2016 Olympic Games; exception laws; urban policy; Right to the City; mega-events.
