Dear colleagues,

LSE Saw Swee Hock Southeast Asia Centre would like to invite you for the following book launch event next week:

 

Book Launch: 'Thinking and Working Politically in Development: Coalitions for Change in the Philippines'

February 10th (Wednesday), 12:00-13:30 GMT

On 10th February 2021, SEAC is hosting a Book Launch for the 2020 book 'Thinking and Working Politically in Development: Coalitions for Change in the Philippines', written by SEAC Associate Prof. John Sidel (Sir Patrick Gillam Professor of International and Comparative Politics at LSE) and Jaime Faustino (The Asia Foundation). This event features an introduction by Prof. John Sidel and Jaime Faustino and discussions by SEAC Associate Prof. James Putzel (Professor of Development Studies at LSE) and SEAC Visiting Senior Fellow Dr Tamaki Endo (Associate Professor in Development Economics, Saitama University, Japan), and will be chaired by Prof. Hyun Bang Shin.

In this publication, authors John T. Sidel and Jaime Faustino look into the Coalitions for Change (CfC), a program of The Asia Foundation and the Australian Embassy Partnership in the Philippines. In looking at CfC’s diverse initiatives–in tax reform, education reform, land governance reform, electoral reform, infrastructure reform, disaster risk reduction and management, and conflict resolution–the book surfaces lessons on problem-driven, adaptive, and iterative policy-making that resonates across the developing world.

This event is free and open to all, but registration is required via Eventbrite.

Please contact Interim Centre Manager Dr Do Young Oh with any questions at seac.admin@lse.ac.uk

 

Best wishes,

Do Young
