Abstract

La principal prioridad de la Europa ampliada consiste en acercar las condiciones de vida de los nuevos miembros a las de los demás estados de la Unión. En este contexto se ha reconocido el potencial de las tecnologías de la información y la comunicación para el crecimiento económico, el empleo y la cohesión social. Las políticas para la integración de los discapacitados no han sido ajenas a este planteamiento y por ello este trabajo centra su atención en la situación de población con discapacidad y en el uso que hacen de estas tecnologías en el área de los países de la ampliación. The first priority of the enlarged Europe is to raise new member states’ living standards towards those of the other Union countries. In this context information and communication technologies are said to be a powerful driver of economic growth, employment and social cohesion. Policies for people with disabilities also follow this approach. Therefore in this paper we focus on disabled people and their use of ICT in the area of the acceding and candidate countries.
