IPC Athletes’ Council global consultation regarding athlete protests
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Athletes’ Council is launching a consultation exercise with the global Para athlete community to gather a better understanding on ways athletes could express their views on key subjects at the Paralympic Games, while respecting the Paralympic Movement’s values and principles.
The IPC Athletes’ Council and IPC will host a series of focus groups with Para athletes that have a dual purpose. Held in multiple languages to gather a global picture, the focus groups aim to provide the athlete community with a better understanding about the current rules, including what is and what is not allowed by athletes, and why the rules are in place.
We encourage any Para athlete to sign up here to register your interest to be part of these focus groups. Detailed information will be shared with registered participants. Please ensure you register by Monday 24 August 2020.
