Competing Views And Strategies On Agrarian Reform, Volume 2: Philippine Perspective
|Author||Saturnino M. Borras Jr|
|Dimension||6 x 9|
After two decades of implementation, the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program continues to be the object of political controversy in the Philippines. This volume, Competing Views and Strategies on Agrarian Reform: Philippine Perspective, hopes to contribute to the debate and aims to deepen the discussion by focusing on the country’s agrarian reform experience, but drawing lessons that are relevant to theory-building and to policy discourse and political actions in situations elsewhere. A companion volume, Competing Views and Strategies on Agrarian Reform: International Perspective, aims to broaden the discussion by focusing on international political, policy and theoretical debates, as well as on some empirical cases from different countries that are relevant to the study of agrarian issues in the Philippines. The overarching theme of the two books is “critical thinking”: conventional assumptions are interrogated, popular propositions critically examined, and new ways of questioning proposed.
