Welcome to the IDPP

We prepare transformative disability policy leaders and serve as a collaborative "think tank" on disability policy for the ASEAN region through an unparalleled network of 20 leading universities and 4 outreach partners, with founding and sustained support from The Nippon Foundation. We contribute to the vision of an ASEAN region that is inclusive, barrier-free and rights-based, and pioneered the world's first virtual master's degree program in disability policy, offered by American University's School of International Service.
