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 offer an accredited Master’s Degree in Comparative and International Disability Policy (CIDP).
IDPP offers the world's first virtual Master's degree in disability policy. Courses incorporate universal design principles, and are accessible to blind, deaf, and mobility impaired students.

From 22 April – 2 May 2013, an IDPP delegation embarked on its fifth Networking and Partnership Mission to the ASEAN region of the past calendar year to Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia. The regular networking missions are an essential part of the IDPP’s efforts to deepen relationships with existing and prospective partners, faculty, and students, as well as expand its outreach and network capacity throughout the ASEAN region.
An IDPP delegation will be attending and providing accessible virtual participation for three of the Spring Meetings of the World Bank’s Global Forum on Law, Justice and Development (GFLJD) from 17–19 April 2013 at World Bank headquarters in Washington, DC.
