Join us at our new series of informal sharing sessions on different topics in Indonesia’s knowledge sector.
"Making research inclusive: Listening to the voices of people with disability"
Dr Dina Afrianty
Research Fellow, La Trobe University
Slamet Thohari, M.A.
Secretary, Center for Disability Studies and Services, Universitas Brawijaya
Good data is a critical building block for inclusive social policy. But in Indonesia, comprehensive data on the barriers people with disability face is limited and their perspectives are often neglected. While several government agencies have made an effort to improve their data collection, some disability advocates have criticised this data as not reflecting the lived experiences of persons with disabilities or the social barriers to inclusion. Outside government, researchers in Indonesian universities and research organisations have begun to develop disability studies as a new area of research. But many researchers struggle to apply inclusive research approaches to their research.
In this KSIxChange, Dr Dina Afrianty will discuss her experiences of inclusive research and provide examples of methodologies and approaches to help ensure that policy research reflects the views and concerns of people with disabilities.
The Knowledge Sector Initiative (KSI) hosts regular discussions led by prominent speakers on topics related to evidence-informed policymaking in Indonesia. Sessions include a short presentation followed by interactive Q&A. KSIxChange is open to all and free to attend. Seats are limited and registrations close the day prior to the event.
KSI is committed to providing an inclusive environment to ensure that people with disabilities can participate fully in KSI events. Please let us know if you have any special assistance needs when you register on Eventbrite, or contact Daniel Dompeipen at email@example.com
