Presentations and papers on the following suggested themes are welcome:

  • Philippine economic strategies for the new Asian century
  • The future of the Philippines-US alliance
  • Living with China, but loving it?
  • ASEAN Regionalism: its promises and its discontents
  • Alternative constructions of “region”
  • The Philippines’ new security partnerships
  • What is an independent foreign policy in a global era?
  • Military modernization: imperatives and perils
  • Winning the peace: from Mindanao to the South China Sea
  • Filipino diaspora: the next 40 years?
  • Being and becoming Filipino: ethnicity, identity and cyberspace
  • The Philippine archipelago: is our maritime geography a curse or blessing?

Selected papers will be reviewed and may be published in a special issue of Asian Politics & Policy and/or as an edited volume byWestphalia Press.Authors are advised to look at guidelines posted at this link. All submissions and inquiries should be sent to [email protected].
