Fed Talk at the PILG

The federalisation of the Philippine Islands was an idea said to have taken root in the country in the late 1800’s.  It has been proposed under different administrations hence.  The Pimentel Institute for Leadership and Governance (PILG) presents “Fed Talk at the PILG,” a podcast series that brings the federalism discourse online.  It is meant to help increase the public’s awareness about federalism and explain the Bayanihan Federal Constitution provisions.  The series is being developed by the PILG with the support of the Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) as part of the project, "Increasing Public Awareness on the Federal System of Government."
