QUEZON CITY – University of the Philippines faculty presented the findings of their research on migration during a public lecture at the UP Asian Center on Wednesday, February 1.


UP Center for Integrative and Development Studies (CIDS) and CIFAL Philippines fellows Prof. Clarinda Berja and Dr. Jean Franco, assisted by Prof. Jeremaiah Opiniano, shared the results of their respective year-long studies on migrants in the Central Visayas, and Filipino labor migration to the ASEAN.
Berja’s research, which supplements an earlier survey conducted in Region 6, generated data on overseas migrants, their families, and their access to government programs for overseas Filipinos in neighboring Central Visayas.
Meanwhile, Franco and Opiniano looked into the impact of the ASEAN Economic Community on labor mobility within the region.
Their presentations were followed by a response from Prof. Stella Go of the Philippine Migration Research Network.
The faculty also took questions from the audience, which was composed of members of the academe, international organizations, migration-related government agencies, and civil society groups.
Final versions of Berja and Franco’s research will be released in a publication later this year.
