Dr. Jovi Clemente Dacanay is the Program Director of the Ph.D. in Business Economics Program of the UA&P School of Economics. She holds the Professorial Chair for International Migration and OFW Remittances and is currently the Treasurer and a Trustee of the Philippine Social Science Council, and the Philippine Economic Society. She crafted Social Economics, a course using economics and Catholic social thought to propose ethical solutions to socio-economic issues. Her research with graduate students on social learning and movies from 2004-2010 has influenced the Philippine movie industry to produce quality and profitable family-oriented films. Consequently, the non-profitable R-rated films are no longer shown in large movie theaters in the Philippines.
