Beyond 2010: Leadership for the Next Generation - UP Academic Congress

Beyond 2010: Leadership for the Next Generation
A UP Academic’s Congress To Challenge our Next Leaders

February 1 to 5, 2010
Malcolm Hall, College of Law
University of the Philippines

This academic congress intends to identify the current issues, map the various approaches that have been tried in the past, provide some assessment of their gains and failures and draw out possible actions that must be done by the next administration. It is intended to empower the general public by making these issues transparent. It is not solely addressed to the candidates for the 2010 elections.

At the end of the forum, the public should be able to draw their own measurable objectives and milestones that can be achieved within the next six years hence allowing them to craft questions which they can ask from their candidates and make wise choices. The forum should draw responses from the political candidates that will go beyond mere generalities or rhetoric.

OPEN TO ALL! No registration fee required.To pre-register, please call the UP Law Dean's Office at 927-0518 or email Please indicate your name, affiliation and the sessions you are attending.
