OHCHR Accessibility Guide
To facilitate access to the Human Rights Council for persons with disabilities, OHCHR has developed a useful Accessibility Guide.
Although focusing on access to Room XX (the Human Rights and Alliance of Civilizations Room) at the Palais des Nations, the guide provides general useful information on accessibility at the Palais des Nations and within the city of Geneva on pages 27-37.
