The Philippines Under President Duterte: Nagging Questions and an Optimistic Outlook (March 29th)
How is the Philippines doing economically and politically? Why is President Rodrigo Duterte's war on drugs, which is taking a serious toll in human lives and social cohesion, still popularly supported?

In his talk, Professor Ravanilla will frame these concerns in the broader economic and political context of the Philippines, and suggest ways to understand and draw insights from the country's current affairs.
