Implications of the Sociopolitical/Economic Context in Development, Humanitarian and Human Rights Work

On January 30 2018, Prof. Edmund Tayao was invited to a workshop organized by the Save the Children entitled “Implications of the Sociopolitical/Economic Context in Development, Humanitarian and Human Rights Work” held at their office in Makati City.

The situational analysis workshop is part of Save the Children’s intent to develop a three-year country strategic plan for 2019-2921 in implementing programs on humanitarian response, recovery and rehabilitation of children and communities affected by natural disaster and armed conflicts.

Prof. Tayao presented an analysis on the following issues

  1. The critical social, political and economic changes in the Philippines that will have implications on the work  of NGOs on development, human rights and humanitarian response.
  2. The opportunities and constraints for NGO work given the social, political and economic situation in the Philippines.
  3. Recommendations to the Save the Children and other NGOs on how to engage and influence key stakeholders and empowering citizens.

Prof. Tayao also gave a brief lecture on the key achievements and failures of each administration after the restoration of democracy in 1986. The workshop also talked about the proposed political reforms, particularly the much-discussed shift to federalism.
