About the Philippines Update

The Philippines Update is a biennial conference that provides in-depth assessment of the recent political, social and economic situation with a thematic focus on timely issues affecting the Philippines. The Update aims to build closer engagement among academics, policy makers, the corporate sector, development sector, and other non-government actors about important issues and development challenges facing the country. It fosters greater awareness between Australia and the Philippines on matters that are of mutual interest.

Each Update includes presentations of political, economic, legal and social developments that address the conference theme. The first Philippine Update was organised in 2012. The Philippines Update is supported by the Australian National University and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Conference Output

Selected papers from the 2018 conference will be produced as an edited book by the conference convenors.
