14/01/2010 Accessible Tourism: European Union and United Nations Policy on The Accessibility of Disabled People to Travel, Tourist Accommodation and Venues
More than half a billion persons in the world are disabled as a result of mental, physical or sensory impairment. The right of disabled persons to participate fully in the social life and development of their societies and to enjoy living conditions equal to those of other citizens, as well as to share equally in the improvements in living conditions resulting from social and economic development has been largely recognized by international and european union resolutions. This right is closely related to the accessibility of the disabled to transport and tourist destinations. In this paper we focus on the initiatives undertaken by the European Union and the United Nations on accessible tourism. These initiatives are based on two elements: The first is to make real improvements at tourist destinations by implementing improved standards in tourist and travelling infrastructure and the second is to make information about the accessibility of tourist destinations widely available to the tourist industry and its customers. Both elements imply the involvement of tourist authorities, travel agencies, hotels, voluntary organizations and others involved in organizing recreational activities or travel opportunities, who should offer their services to all, taking into account the special needs of persons with disabilities.
