PUBLIC POLICY JOURNAL VOL. VIII, No. 2 (July – December 2004)

This issue features articles on public policy at the grassroots level in the Philippines. The three studies suggest that public policy must be sited in a communal space occupied jointly by the state and the public. The vision of social transformation is inevitably a political project but it is one in which various stake holders seek to be heard above the din in the halls of politicians.

PUBLIC POLICY JOURNAL VOL. X, No. 2 (July – December 2006)

This is the law issue of the Public Policy Journal. It features articles that confront head-on the deeper issues that underlie current debates over substantive political and social issues: the role of the Supreme Court in deciding cases; the ideological cloak that covers resistance to the teaching of sex education in schools; the hidden institutional barriers to the successful prosecution of crimes against children; and the subtle ways by which the rhetoric of the SONA reshapes not just the president’s image of herself but the Filipino public’s notion of selfhood.
