The Paralympic Games are supervised by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), a body recognised by the IOC. Each edition of the Paralympic Games is under the responsibility of an organising committee.
They are always held in the same year as the Olympic Games.
Since the 1988 Summer Games in Seoul and the 1992 Winter Games in Albertville, the Paralympic Games have been held using the same venues as the Olympic Games.
Since the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City, the same organising committee has been responsible for staging both the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
