The conference is organized by the students of PS 282 – The Philippines in the Global Features under Assistant Professor Henelito A. Sevilla, Jr., Ph.D. PS 282 is a graduate-level course that aims to contribute to imagining and articulating Philippine external relations using an alternative axis – that of global north and global south – as an organizing geography for the field. It specifically aims to map out cleavages and convergences within the Global South through an examination of the structure of its political system, political culture and political economy, and the major current issues that it faces, e.g., Islamic peace process, migration, human rights, climate change, and health issues and diseases, as they relate to the pursuit of Philippine geopolitical objectives.
