We contribute to the vision of an ASEAN region that is inclusive, barrier-free and rights-based, where people who are disabled are leaders in the determination of their own destinies.We offer an accredited Master's Degree in Comparative and International Disability Policy (CIDP).

Our Vision:

Contribute to the overall vision of an ASEAN region that is inclusive, barrier-free and rights-based, where people who are disabled are leaders in the determination of their own destinies.

Our Mission:

To be the preeminent institute for 1) partnering with governments to foster public policies that promote people with disabilities entering society to compete on a par with their non disabled peers, and 2) preparing disabled leaders in the field of public policy.

Our Objectives:
