AIDRAN convenes a biennial conference for members and our collaborators working on disability and social inclusion in Indonesia and Australia. The aim of these conferences is to support the development of inclusive innovative research that can directly feed into the broader social policy agendas of disability rights, development and inclusion.

The conference provides a platform for the work of AIDRAN members and our collaborators, including advocates and policymakers to come together in dialogue and to create opportunities for disability rights, inclusion and participation through the sharing of research and practice.
