Date & time
The Duterte administration is often considered a rupture in Philippine’s politics. Yet, how different is Duterte’s programme of change from the past governments, particularly from its predecessor, the Aquino II administration? Is there a shift in regime orientation and policy preferences from Aquino II to Duterte? What will this mean to the future direction of Philippine democracy, its economic development, peace and security, and relations with other countries?
This volume focuses on four critical areas- politics and governance, economic governance, Mindanao peace process, and international relations - to illustrate continuities or discontinuities in policies and governance of institutions to explain the dynamics of change in the Philippines.
The program starts at 3:00pm followed by book signing and cocktail reception. This is a free event but registration is required for catering purposes. RSVP to Ms. Rose San Pascual at email@example.com
