The Duty to provide Reasonable Accommodation to People with Disabilities

2017 edition

David Gutiérrez Colominas

Taking into account the scenario of Directive 2000/78, the main research question of my PhD Dissertation is to analyze the effectiveness of the european configuration of the duty to provide reasonable accommodation. In fact, my PhD is going to cover more aspects of the duty (specifically, the origins and the actual configuration of the duty in Spain), but in this presentation I will present some results regarding to the European configuration of the duty. In order to achieve it, this research will focus on three issues: a) Who is protected; b) What is an accommodation;  and, finally, c) The conceptualization of disproportionate burden.
