ICSS Journal Vol 2 No 3

In the build up to the Brazil 2014 FIFA World Cup, many anticipated that it would be accompanied by mass demonstrations protesting government spending on the event and social issues. However, such protests did not materialise on the scale seen before the tournament. The September-October edition of ICSS Journal gives first-hand accounts of how a major sporting event played out when it intersected with social values, both from the perspective of police tactics and fan behaviour.

This edition also analyses compliance issues for geolocation data gathered at sports events, which are increasingly being used for security and marketing applications. Other topics discussed include the utility of ‘tabletop scenarios’ in security planning; the challenges of boosting and drug use in Paralympic sports; and the legacy of the 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
