“Already in its third year, the 2018 Katipunan Conference focused on configuring the Strategic Outlook for the Philippines, given developments in regional security and economic environment, domestic politics and society, and the recent political change as a consequence of presidential succession in 2016. This concise documentation of the conference is the [UP CIDS Strategic Studies Program]’s modest contribution in fostering meaningful and substantive discourse on pressing strategic matters facing the Philippines and the larger Asia-Pacific region.”
