This text provides an innovative approach to the pedagogy of contemporary planning processes within different cultural contexts globally. It adopts an innovative multi-disciplinary social science approach, and, through the inclusion of international case studies, considers the extent to which intelligent design has enabled the needs of disabled residents and visitors to have universal access to social spaces and facilities. Incorporating this consideration into the fabric of the book will encourage the mainstreaming of universal design and accessible tourism, as keystones of planning processes within the twenty-first century.

“This book fulfils a need for an accessible text….The use of a wide range of case studies is interesting and the contributions from tourism planners and developers is very worthwhile. There is also good coverage of a range of tourism planning approaches. This book is recommended for undergraduate and postgraduate students on tourism planning and development courses.”

Dr Phil Long - , Bournemouth University
