Left in Lula’s passion: The politics of Rio 2016 and Dilma Rousseff

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

In 2010 Brazil elected its first woman President, Dilma Rousseff. Successor to former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (popularly referred to as Lula) and leader of the Partido dos Trabalhadores [the Workers’ Party], or PT, she inherited the legacies of the Lula administration. This included the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games. The Cup and the Games, as integral elements of Lula’s political agenda and legacy (Gaffney, 2010; Canales, 2011; Clift & Andrews, 2012), at least partially contributed to the shaping of President Rousseff’s political agenda. Within this paper, I offer a reading of Rio 2016 contextualized within the political agenda and legacy of Lula, subsequently President Rousseff, and the changes in Brazil during the tenure of one to the other.
