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.

Call for Papers for PPSA 2020 International Conference

posted Nov 14, 2019, 9:13 AM by Philippine Political Science Association


2020 PPSA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

OF SCREAMS AND SILENCES: THE POLITICS OF SPACES AND VOICES

23-24 April 2020



BACKGROUND



Where politics was once exercised through civilized discourse, dialogue and purposive action, social media and the strong winds of populism have atomized claims to power and reconstituted the spaces in which such claims are made. Asymmetric power reigns amid persistent inequities in societal structures and relations. Politics converges in spaces where those in the margins can enter the mainstream at the level of discourse, but never quite challenge the privileged nor effectively contest those who wield it. Freedoms and guaranteed rights to minorities as cornerstones of political liberalism are under threat within these narrowed and increasingly polarized political spaces.

 

The 2020 Philippine Political Science Association conference invites papers that interrogate the asymmetry of power at the micro/meso/macro and global scales; describe challenges to dominant and privileged positions and discourses, and explain assertions and voicelessness of those in the margins. Papers examining the disposition of state power, civil society agency, collaborative innovations, and interest configurations in the new multipolar global order are invited.



 

SUB THEMES

 

  • Political inclusion/exclusion
  • Social inequality and discrimination
  • Gender as identity and basis for action
  • Religion, ideology and violent extremism 
  • Multiculturalism
  • Indigenous people’s rights and political assertions
  • Armed and (unarmed) electoral contestation
  • Civil and un-civil society in the social media age
  • Representation and participation by the poor and marginalised sectors
  • Political activism
  • Populism and its discontents
  • Grassroots and community-based formations and dynamics
  • Parties, partisanship and political dynasties in local politics
  • Press freedom and freedom of expression
  • Elite dominance
  • Federalism, territorial self-governance and decentralisation
  • Civil service in the peripheries
  • Key service delivery (health, water and sanitation, environmental protection, education, etc) and state agency
  • Public policy on a local lens
  • Transparency and accountability
  • The muscular state: changing roles of the police, military and state security apparatus
  • Governance rebooted
  • Negotiated conflict settlements and peace prospects
  • Economic development and the role of the state
  • Rethinking political philosophies
  • Power asymmetries and international relations
  • Philippine foreign policy in a multipolar environment
