CoEDS aims to provide a forum for researchers, practitioners, policy makers, disabled persons and civil society to share experiences and perspectives on issues and challenges we face in promoting the social inclusion of people with disabilities. At CoEDS, disability is viewed not as a personal tragedy, but as a societal issue that requires a paradigm shift – one that moves away from seeing disabled people as objects of charity to one that views them as people who have intrinsic human rights.
CoEDS therefore seeks to promote disability studies as a field of study which addresses the marginalisation and exclusion of people with disabilities in society. Their research and development projects are aimed at bringing people from various backgrounds and with different abilities together to facilitate partnership and full participation.
CoEDS also aims to create extensive networks with various institutions and agencies locally and internationally in forging practice, research and policy on promoting a disability-sensitive and inclusive society.
