The ICSD strives to stay in close collaboration with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) by practicing the philosophy of "Olympism" as a guide in governing Deaflympic events. In doing so, the ICSD adheres to "the Olympic Movement" in which the IOC defines as the "concerted, organised, universal and permanent action" carried out under its authority with the goal "to contribute to building a peaceful and better world by educating youth through sport practised in accordance with Olympism and its values."
The following links set forth the components of the Olympic Movement of which the ICSD stays in compliance with to have Deaflympics and Olympics share the same core of Olympism.
