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.
