Reasonable Accommodation

A reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment provided to persons with disabilities in order to facilitate equal opportunities in their effective participation and exercise of rights. The provision of reasonable accommodation is to be judged on a case-by-case basis, and would vary according to the particular circumstances, depending on factors such as the nature and degree of disability and the needs or preferences of the particular person with disabilities involved. At the same time, the accommodation must not impose a disproportionate or undue burden on the duty-bearer.

In this section, you will find legal and other resources on the issue of reasonable accommodation. The legal resources are divided into the following categories:
a) International resources, which are arranged by bodies.

b) Domestic resources, which are arranged by countries.

Other resources include mainly academic articles and advocacy and training materials relating to reasonable accommodation.
