On the official opening of 12th Paralympic Games, the toolkit for athletes addresses the interrelated issues of sport, disability and human rights in an international context.

Included in the package are six items: toolkit on disability, human rights and sport that was distributed to the over 4,000 athletes attending the Paralympic Games in six languages: English, Spanish, French, Russian, Arabic and Chinese; background paper on the need for a convention and its current status in the UN system; chronology of international events in the development of the human rights approach to disability; the existing international human rights treaty framework – core treaties (chart); website resource list; and organizational fact sheets.
