The Peace Movement on the Occasion of the 21ST Century Olympic Games: Developments and Limitations

Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 6 (2):123-137 (2012)
Olympism is among other things a peaceful philosophy. This means in practice that the most important thing for a researcher who studies peace movement in the Olympic Games is to examine how peace movements have been developed in the Olympic Games. The development of peace movement would be verified by analyzing the torch relay, the opening ceremony, and the Olympic Truce Resolution, in particular. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the validity of these peace movements in recent Olympic Games and to clarify the problems arising from implementation of peace movement into the Olympic Games
