Accessibility and reasonable accommodation

Accessibility and reasonable accommodation are important pillars of disability inclusion. They contribute to remove barriers to information, communication, services, products, and devices.

Accessibility and reasonable accommodation benefit everyone and society and contribute to ensuring that persons with disabilities are able to live independently and participate fully in all aspects of life.

This brief primarily focuses on reasonable accommodation and accessibility with the objective to develop a greater understanding of these in institutional contexts, to strengthen organisations and institutions’ internal awareness and capacities, and to promote a more detailed attention to accessibility and reasonable accommodation in the intersection with gender.

This publication is part of the “Briefs on women and girls with disabilities series”.
