The 2021 Disability Sport Conference will focus on how we can promote human rights, diversity and inclusion in disability sport.

The conference is aimed at anyone with an interest in using sport for people with disabilities as a tool for health, inclusion, peace or development.

The event will be based around four themes:

  • Disability sport, human rights and social inclusion
  • Sport and health for people with disabilities
  • Paralympic and disability sport legacies
  • Disability sport for peace and development

The conference will be one of the outputs from the EventRights project, which is supported by the European Union.

Some of the research that will be presented received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement number 823815.
