ABSTRACT

[Purpose] The purpose of this study is to explore the philosophical implications of guaranteeing sports rights for the disabled. [Method] To this end, the analysis was conducted focusing on literature related to sports rights. [Result] The results are as follows. Sports rights of the disabled are guaranteed by basic sports rights, as the disabled cannot be an exception. All human beings have the right to enjoy sports. For the disabled, sports rights have three philosophical implications: first, their physical activity needs and sports enjoyment rights; second, the independent participation of going from spectators to participants; third, the improvement of sports human rights. Good lives for the disabled should be protected through the guarantee of the sports rights of the disabled. Life is not divided into disabled and non-disabled people, but all humans have the right to live happily regardless of whether they are disabled or not. It has a philosophical meaning that has been guaranteed by law. [Conclusion] The guarantee of sports rights for the disabled can be developed through sports facilities, sports programs, and training sports leaders for the disabled. The state and local governments should prepare practical measures and policies to guarantee the sports rights of disabled and non-disabled people.
