In the UN-Convention on the rights of people with disabilities barrier free accessibility is identified as one of the important prerequisites for participation and inclusion. In the German State North-Rhine –Westalia (NRW), the Government has set up and action plan for the implementation of the UN-Convention. One focus is access to the built environment.
