Abstract

The study explores negative and positive impacts of events in both developing and developed nations. Using Zimbabwe and the UK as examples, the aim is to demonstrate the different ways event impacts affect different societies. The main finding was the discovery of a gap in existing event studies, clarifying that there are limited frameworks that are intended to gauge the scope of event impacts within emerging nations. In addition to this, events can result in negative and positive impacts and these are determined by the implementation of the event. This is fundamentally subjective to social, political, and economic impacts within the community, thus again questioning the literature in relation to developing nations.
