Full title: Understanding parasport : analysis of the differences between able-bodied and parasport from a sport policy perspective / Jacqueline Martins Patatas, Veerle De Bosscher, David Legg

Parasport is a growing field of study with many countries recognising the need to develop organisational structures in order to optimise the development of high-performance sport opportunities for Paralympic athletes. Policy development in this area is currently still under developed and a significant knowledge gap is apparent regarding the development of Paralympic athlete programmes, and the understanding of how to develop long-term athlete pathways. This study hereby aims to address this gap by identifying how elite sport policy approaches differ between able-bodied and parasport.
