Philippine Politics and Governance

Philippine Politics and Governance


Politics Without Borders: Philippine Politics and Governance (Padayon Series) provides a basic yet intellectually stimulating introduction to the study of Philippine politics and governance.

It introduces students not only to the workings of the Philippine governmental system and the various processes and means by which citizens can participate and get represented in politics and governance. It also introduces them to the debates and complexities of civil society participation and state-civil society relations in Philippine society. 

Adopting a “broad yet variegated approach” in studying politics and governance, the textbook focuses both on rules and institutions, emphasizes both formal and informal conceptions of institutions, and develops in the students a value-critical stance on existing rules and institutions in the Philippines.
