This event is organized in partnership with the UP CIDS Program on Alternative Development, Decolonial Studies Program, Program on Data Science for Public Policy, Program on Escaping the Middle-Income Trap: Chains for Change, Islamic Studies Program, Political Economy Program, and Strategic Studies Program.

About the Event

President Rodrigo Duterte’s fourth State of the Nation Address (SONA) comes in the wake of the May midterm elections which saw the defeat (or unequivocal rout) of the more liberally- and democratically-minded opposition in both chambers of Congress. In three years, the Duterte administration continues to enjoy high levels of public satisfaction amid its bloody campaign against illegal drugs, the Marawi siege and martial law in Mindanao, and territorial disputes with China, among many others.

In this roundtable discussion, we invite the public to join us and a group of academics and experts on political science, Islamic studies, foreign relations, constitutional law, and economics to discuss and review the achievements and challenges that the current administration face as we reach the midpoint of the Duterte presidency.
