The principle aim of this study was to identify how different intermediaries (e.g., policy approaches, participatory processes and commercial incentives) impact the monitoring, implementation and enforcement of e-accessibility policies. DREAM is the acronym for a group of member states interested in this endeavour.  The findings revealed:

  1. The need to develop an international procedural standard
