The IDPP’s inaugural Annual Meeting and Residency Period took place 18-29 July 2011 in Bangkok, Thailand. The residency period welcomed the first cohort of ten students from the ASEAN region who will earn a Master’s in Comparative and International Disability Policy (CIDP), offered by American University’s School of International Service. The CIDP program is the world’s first virtual Master’s program on disability studies and public policy, but began with this two-week face-to-face residency that introduced the first cohort of CIDP graduate students to the Institute on Disability and Public Policy (IDPP) for the ASEAN Region, its university and outreach partners, and to key concepts that will be developed further in classes and seminars throughout the year. The residency exposed CIDP students to invaluable expert seminars, technology training sessions, a policy exercise, site visits to local NGOs, networking opportunities, and weekend excursions.
