Olympic Reflections and Human Dignity
The objective of this project was to provide current topics that are internationally relevant in the fields of humanity, social condition, sport and the Olympic Movement. The project “Olympic Reflections and Human Dignity” was developed thanks to the collaboration of 24 experts in Philosophy and Olympic Studies.
The project was based on team work including the collaboration of the eMuseum of Sport and the Brazilian Pierre de Coubertin Committee and was supported by the International Pierre de Coubertin Committee (IPCC). The project was initiated in August 2021 with a Virtual Exhibition. It had the support of various institutions: the Information Center of the United Nations for Brazil (UNIC Rio), the United Nations agency for refugees (ACNUR) and the Organization of the United Nations for Education, Science and Culture (UNESCO). Additionally, an eBook was launched on 1st January 2022 to honor and celebrate the date of birth of Pierre de Coubertin.
This eBook analyses contemporary policies and human relations that encompass all the section of society including the Olympic Movement. It discusses four basic topics: Freedom of Speech, Sport and Values, Refugees, and Intersexuality. 19 texts are divided into four chapters.
