Mission: The Center for Inclusive Policy (CIP) supports international, regional, and national stakeholders in the development and evaluation of public policies and programs fostering full and effective inclusion and participation of marginalized groups in low and middle income countries, in particular for persons with disabilities.

Our approach: The center works collaboratively in partnership with national,  international, and non-governmental  non-governmental organizations. Our goal is to contribute to building the capacity for inclusive policy through knowledge development and dissemination, technical assistance, and by facilitating dialogue and links between various stakeholders.
