Dear friends of JJCICSI,

Please join us on the morning of November 18, Saturday, from 8:30AM to 12nn, for a a forum titled “Do We Need Duterte’s Federalism?” Speaking at the forum will be Atty Christian Monsod, a drafter of our current constitution, and Dean Ronald Mendoza of the Ateneo School of Government. Atty. Monsod will begin the forum by sharing his perspective on the idea of, and prospects for, a “revolutionary government”–a proposal that President Duterte and his allies and supporters have been floating as a means to achieve a federalist structure and the change that President Duterte has promised.

The forum will be held at the Walter Hogan Conference Hall, Social Development Complex, Ateneo de Manila University (aka the ISO Conference Hall).
