PPSA Webinar 1.0

posted May 9, 2020, 3:51 AM by Philippine Political Science Association   [ updated May 9, 2020, 3:53 AM ]

Dear PPSA Members,


As a service to our members, the Philippine Political Science Association has prepared an online platform featuring a series of webinars entitled 

Call out: Politics and Governance in the Age of COVID-19 Pandemic”. 


This initiative serves as an academic arena to create knowledge, identify nuances, and offer learning in response to COVID-19 pandemic. The unprecedented emergency measures put in place is generating new political trends heretofore unseen in terms of the extension of state power, local government assertions, private sector and civil society involvement and police/military visibility in our streets. The effects of these measures have been particularly difficult for the poor and daily wage earners, and for families having to stay home and stay put.

The webinar features discussion and dialogue around the institutional responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and its implications to Philippine democracy. Four aspects are examined:

(1) Re-centralization of power as the national government asserts authority over LGUs on emergency measures taken;

(2) Localized cases of COVID-19 pandemic response that looks at networks, bridging and social capital formation between governments, private sector and civil society, and frameworks used;

(3) The role of police and military in implementing emergency measures nuanced by LGU strategies; and

(4) Gendered effects of the pandemic and government’s policy response.


PPSA webinar 1.0 will be on 25 June 2020 at 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM. If you want to participate, kindly register using this link: https://forms.gle/RtNTjfEwcHRc1HDm6


We appreciate your continued engagement with PPSA and sharing insights with fellow members in our community through these difficult times. We hope you can join us in this effort to try to move our activities to this new platform, even as we hope that global health conditions will improve in the coming months.


Please stay healthy and safe.



Event Advisory: PPSA 2020 International Conference

posted Mar 18, 2020, 10:31 PM by Philippine Political Science Association

In light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic updates, the Philippine Political Science Association (PPSA) Board of Trustees met on Saturday (14 March 2020) and decided to POSTPONE the PPSA Conference to 26-27 August 2020 (Wednesday and Thursday). The new date 26-27 August 2020 is based on our optimistic assumption that the COVID 19 situation would be over by the summer. 


The deadline for registration is extended to 15 June 2020.


We hope that you are still able to attend the conference on this new date. In case the new date is not amenable to your schedule, we will provide a payment refund. Kindly contact the PPSA 2020 secretariat for the refund process at ppsa2020conference@gmail.com.


For those who have already booked a flight to/from and accommodation in Iloilo, we would like to ask you to kindly rebook or get a travel refund from your respective airlines and hotel. Given the community quarantine and the travel ban in place into/out of Luzon, we think that airlines and hotels have these options in place. 


We thank you for understanding of the difficult decision we had to make. We hope that the postponement of the conference to a later date will still encourage you to participate. Lastly, we wish everyone safe and healthy days ahead.

PPSA Announcement on COVID-19

posted Mar 10, 2020, 8:11 PM by Philippine Political Science Association


In view of increasing COVID-19 cases in the country, academic institutions in Metro Manila have taken measures such as week-long cancellations of classes, and suspensions of local and international travel until 31 March 2020. 

In Iloilo, City Mayor Jerry P. Treñas signed Executive Order (EO) 038 for the “suspension of all major public gatherings” due to the COVID-19 until the end of March 2020. 

Such actions have greatly affected the ability to register for the 2020 PPSA international conference on 23-24 April 2020. There is a great deal of uncertainty, inhibiting many from making travel plans to Iloilo for the PPSA conference. 

Given this, the PPSA Board of Trustees will convene on Saturday, 14 March 2020 to discuss courses of action related to holding the International Conference on 23-24 April in Iloilo City.  Mechanisms, in case of postponement, will also be deliberated. 

An official announcement regarding the PPSA conference will be made on 16 March 2020 (Monday). Please bear with us.
