modern Europe, in more modern Western societies as well as less developed
and non-Western ones.

by governments, civil society organizations and development partners to accelerate progress
towards MDGs 4 and 5 (1).

of international mass communications, the media event. The growth of
FIFA and the IOC, and of their major events, has provided a platform for
the articulation and expression of national pride and prestige.
