Welcome to the IDPP

The Institute on Disability and Public Policy promotes the analysis and understanding of public policies for persons with disabilities. We contribute to the vision of an ASEAN region that is inclusive, barrier-free, and rights-based, where persons with disabilities are leaders in the determination of their own destinies. We pioneered an accredited master’s degree in Comparative and International Disability Policy (CIDP).
