This paper is a research about how the Olympic Games affect the global communication. Our answer is that the Olympic Games affect more on the global individual communication, but have rare effects on national communication.

Mussolini wanted to regain the Roman Empire to it's former glory, and initiated his nationalistic plan with the invasion of Abyssinia in 1935. Both Italy and Abyssinia were members of the League, meaning that it fell to them to deal with this, and could possibly help the League regain respect and credibility which it had recently lost. Instead, the situation in Abyssinia seemed to spark the end of the League.
In 2010 the Conservative David Cameron arrived in Downing Street after 13 years of Labour rule, alongside the Liberal Democrats, thus forming a so-called hung parliament. Obviously, it is argued that David Cameron’s government was the one that took credit for the great success of the Olympic Games, while Tony Blair defended his role in the bringing of the Games to London in several newspapers.

However, the rivalry between the two major parties in the United Kingdom is not the only issue that the political world faced. In fact, the wish
The Olympics are a great and mighty tradition that has been around for hundreds of years, and being able to host such an amazing event, is an honor. For example, during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, many people would agree that it was a once in a lifetime opportunity and the “good-feel” factor that it brought with it, especially being downtown.
