Panel Proposal:

Philippine Democracy, International Relations and Foreign Policy

If we are to employ the levels of analysis as a tool for examining Philippine democracy, it is inevitable that the issue of how changes in the domestic level and the international environment relate with each other. How, for example, does the changes in the international environment impinge upon the pace of the Philippine’s democratic development? Or how does the changes in the structure and process of the country’s democracy affect its relations with other states and non-state actors across borders?

The panel is interested in examining the dynamics of the conference’s theme, “Democracy: Progress, Reversal, Defects, and Prospects” by focusing on the country’s international relations and foreign policy. Of particular interest for the panel are paper proposals dealing with how changes, questions or problems in the country’s democracy relate with the actors and structures of its international relations and foreign policy.

Paper proposals focusing on, but not limited to, the topics below are highly encouraged;

1. democracy and the Philippines’s relations with China, US and other countries, and with international organizations such as the ASEAN and UN

2.  how democratic changes or problems give rise to new actors or new role for old actors in Philippine international relations and foreign policy

3. democracy and decision making in Philippine foreign policy

4. public opinion and non-state actors in Philippine international relations and foreign policy
