Background Document on "Design for All"


On 3rd December 2001, the European Commission, together with the European Disability Forum, took "Discrimination By Design" as the theme of the Conference to celebrate the European Day of Disabled People.

This background document was prepared to explain the concept of Design for All and its importance as an approach for making the world accessible to people with disabilities.

Note that some of the References from 2001 may no longer be up-to-date.

The document is available in 11 languages.
