This paper analyses the contradictions and conflicts affecting two trends in the urban government and governance of Brazilian cities: the increase in the institutionalisation of practices for participation by civil society in the construction of public policies and the expansion of forms of urban entrepreneurial practices. The analysis focuses on the impacts that the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics are having on institutional spaces for socio-political participation and on processes for the organisation and strengthening of social movements at national level. Current dynamics are illustrated with a discussion of the literature and the use of data from surveys, official documents and those government websites and social movement websites that are particularly involved in urban development processes in cities connected with past and future mega sports events.
Keywords: Urban governance; social movements; mega sports events
