Institute on Disability and Public Policy (IDPP)
The Institute on Disability and Public Policy was established in cooperation with groups including organizations representing persons with disabilities to respond to the limited support available for students with disabilities in the ASEAN region pursuing higher education. IDPP’s main focus is the use of online instruction to offer courses on disability studies and public policy, as well as management and various other subjects. The online courses make it possible for students to study using sign-language interpretation and text-to-speech software.
Our aim is for persons with disabilities to acquire a high level of specialized knowledge regarding public policy and disabilities, so they can become involved in creating disability-related legislation and policies at government agencies and other organizations in the future.
