  • Law and Governance: Politics and Self-determination – An examination of emerging issues on governance, such as, the rising conflict between the press and governments; issues on national security and human rights in light of advances in technology; and other constitutional issues (e.g., the issues surrounding the independence movement, push for a federal form of government in the Philippines and the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law in the Philippines).
