The book Building Inclusive Democracies in ASEAN was launched on November 10, 2015 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Makati City.
The book, said its editors, “is the result of a seminal cross-institutional collaboration among researchers from the AIM Rizalino S. Navarro Policy Center for Competitiveness of the Asian Institute of Management (AIM), the Ateneo School of Government of Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU), the College of Liberal Arts of De La Salle University (DLSU), and the National College of Public Administration and Governance of the University of the Philippines Diliman (UP-NCPAG). The specific goal of the research partnership, which started in 2011, is to co-produce and disseminate the latest research and evidence on political and economic reforms in the Philippines and the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN).”
This volume, which contains the latest research and insights of academics and development practitioners pursing political and economic reforms in the ASEAN, was co-edited by UP-NCPAG Dean Maria Fe Villamejor-Mendoza, Dean Antonio La Viña of ADMU, Dean Julio Teehankee of the DLSU, Dr. Ronald Mendoza of AIM and Dr. Edsel Beja Jr. of ADMU.
The book launching was held alongside the 53rd Annual Meeting of the Philippine Economic Society Conference. Also launched in the event was the knowledge portal buildinganinclusivedemocracy.org, which contains materials generated by the Building an Inclusive Democracy consortium ranging from datasets, research papers, op-eds, and other publications.
Building Inclusive Democracies in ASEAN is published by Anvil and available in all National Bookstore and Powerbooks branches.
