From Marcos to Arroyo : what went wrong for democracy in the Philippines?

James Andrew RICE

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook ChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter will argue that neither the rationales advanced by advocates of the socialist left nor those advanced by advocates of the authoritarian right can serve as a key to assessing history or the promises the future holds. I will argue that the problem facing the Philippines in terms of both achieving democratic governance and attaining sustained economic prosperity lies in the long-standing failure to uphold the rule of law.
