- Abstract in English : The universal design strategy has proven to be most effective in areas where the traditional accessibility line of action has little impact or has lost its momentum. This is the clear conclusion of the first phase of the Norwegian Programme of Action for Universal Design, the objective of which was to implement and use universal design in all relevant decision making in public administration. The main targets in the public administrative systems were the ministries and the central government. The presentation will describe the thinking behind the Programme of Action for Universal Design, how it was organised and conducted, the failures and factors of success and the results so far. The results span from the incorporation of the universal design strategy into political thinking, national laws and regulation to concrete results in a number of sectors.
