A ‘reasonable accommodation’ is a modification or adjustment that provides persons with disabilities equal opportunities to , exercise their rights and effectively participate on an equal basis with others. The provision of reasonable accommodation is to be assessed on a case-by-case basis and varies according to the particular circumstances (i.e. depending on factors such as the nature and degree of the disability and needs or preferences of the particular individual). At the same time, the accommodation must not impose a disproportionate or undue burden on the duty-bearer.

This section sets out legal and other resources on reasonable accommodation. The resources are divided into the following categories:

a)    International resources, which are arranged by human rights bodies.

b)    Domestic resources, which are arranged by countries.

The other resources primarily include academic articles and advocacy and training materials relating to ‘reasonable accommodation’.
