Centre of Excellence for Disability Studies (CoEDS)

The Centre of Excellence for Disability Studies was established in UNIMAS in May 2011 and is anchored at the Faculty of Social Sciences. Being the first of its kind in Malaysia and possibly in the ASEAN region, CoEDS serves as a platform for academics, practitioners, disabled persons’ organisations and civil society to advance research, practice and education on disability studies. Informed by disability studies internationally, its R&D activities will focus on exploring social, political, cultural, and economic factors that define disability and spearhead collective responses towards creating an inclusive society.
