dc.description.abstractThis thesis investigates the role of identity politics in the relation between hosting international sport events and international relations. In order to formulate a theoretical mechanism for this, this thesis adopts the English School discipline. International sporting events are hypothesised to be useful for states, as they can use the platform to create and alter their status and identity within the international system. The thesis will analyse 3 case studies by subjecting them to the formulated 3C paradigm. The research results of the analysis shows a strong plausibility that the formulated 3c paradigm accurately represents state consideration during the hosting of international events. In conclusion, sporting events have strategic use for states in IR, as they are used to change the status of a state and interact with the international society,en_US
