The Institute on Disability and Public Policy focuses on the analysis and understanding of public policy for persons with disabilities. 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:
