Phase IV: Asia Pacific Sign Linguistics Research and Training Program: A Project for Deaf Empowerment (2018-2030)

Phase IV will focus on supporting the development of sign linguistics at the tertiary level by establishing a consortium among partner universities in the Asia-Pacific region. Under this consortium, different kinds of academic activities, including scholarship programs, conferences, summer schools, research collaborations, development of on-line resources, etc. will be carried out. Hopefully, these efforts will successfully enhance the development of sign linguistics in individual countries and bring forth more positive changes in the education and social conditions of the local Deaf communities in the long run.
