Neil Walker, European University Institute, Florence This book explores recent developments in the theory and practice of accommodating cultural diversity within democratic constitutional orders.It brings together philosophers and legal scholars to explore the inter-play between the normative precepts advanced by the former for the accommodation of cultural pluralism and the reality of that accommodation as it plays itself out in political and legal practice, as explained by the latter.Universal design (close relation to inclusive design) refers to broad-spectrum ideas meant to produce buildings, products and environments that are inherently accessible to older people, people without disabilities, and people with disabilities.The term "universal design" was coined by the architect Ronald Mace to describe the concept of designing all products and the built environment to be aesthetic and usable to the greatest extent possible by everyone, regardless of their age, ability, or status in life.Curb cuts or sidewalk ramps, essential for people in wheelchairs but also used by all, are a common example.
