Universal Design is a concept that tries to make minorities’ life, especially persons with disabilities, better: not only be by destroying physical barriers but also by trying to include them socially. Some Universal Design solutions exist and are being developed. Unfortunately, this development concerns few countries especially from the developed world. The idea is to look for the reasons why the inclusive designs ideas are not universal (everywhere). This work aims a better understanding for the different realities of representative countries in order to find a way to introduce Universal Design where there is a lake of awareness about it.
