Every period in the long and rich history of the Philippines carries diverse governance lessons that the nation can apply in steering the country towards a brighter and just future. Through his book series on Philippine governance, UA&P co-founder and founding chairman of the Institute for Solidarity in Asia Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao has explored and shared these lessons starting with his book, “Governance in the Philippines: Spanish Colonial Rule (1565-1898)” in 2018, followed by the “Governance of the Philippines: The US colonial period 1898-1946”, in 2020. The last installment of his governance trilogy entitled “Governance of the Philippines, as a Republic 1946-2021” highlights the governance lessons we gained as a nation following our independence from the United States exactly 75 years ago.

The Office of Alumni Affairs (OAA), on behalf of the Institute for Solidarity in Asia (ISA), invites everyone to the upcoming launch of this final book on July 30 (Friday) at 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.

Dr. Estanislao has always supported the University’s efforts and has remained a solid compass to many CRC and UA&P alumni. OAA will be giving away Uappy dolls to five lucky winners who will register using their uap.asia email. Winners will be announced on August 2 (Monday) via OAA’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.
