Paralympic Narratives- Perceptions of Disability


The Paralympic Games have the potential to change popular perceptions of disability. 1- Is the specific legacy potential of the Paralympic Games taken seriously by politicians and Games organisers? 2- Could stories about the Paralympic Games and disabled athletes have a negative impact on disabled people? 3- Is it asking too much of the Paralympic Games to change people’s attitudes towards disability?
