Institutions, Politics and Human Development in the Philippines


Drawing from multi-disciplinary expertise and research, this new Report examines how the quality of governance institutions matters in moving human development forward, given that policies designed to advance HD emanate from and are implemented by public sector institutions. It discusses bureaucratic reforms, the national government budget process, and the internal rule enforcement bodies in government. Throughout the Report, the experiences of the Department of Education are cited to illustrate how institutional rules may impinge upon an agency’s ability to deliver on its mandate.
