Abstract


Pierre de Coubertin’s aim was to start a global movement through the modern Olympic games which encompassed all of the countries and their youth as representatives of their respective countries. The movement that he attempted to create had sport at its core and aimed to educate all youth without discrimination and by this way, he wanted to contribute to make the world a better and peaceful place. To be able to reach his aim, the first one being in 1894, he organized İnternational Olympic Congresses to spread the movement and to plant the philosophic frame of the Olympic movement. The start of the Olympic games resulted as the most important outcome of these congresses. The purpose of this research is to examine, the first one being in 1894 and the last one in Copenhagen in 2009, the ways how the theme of peace was put in place and functioned in the 13 congresses.
