Below is a letter from our Chairman, Surichai Wun'Gaeo:
1 June 2015
As many of you will have heard by now, we are sadly bidding farewell to Pablo Solon, who has been the Executive Director of Focus on the Global South since April 2012. We at Chula, CUSRI and the region have benefited greatly from his presence. Pablo will be returning to Bolivia at the end of May, but will continue to work on the same issues, so our paths will no doubt continue to cross.
We're pleased to announce the release of State of Fragmentation: The Philippines in Transition. The book is jointly published by Focus on the Global South and Friedrich Ebert Siftung and authored by: Walden Bello, Kenneth Cardenas, Jerome Patrick Cruz, Alinaya Fabros, Mary Ann Manahan, Clarissa Militante, Joseph Purugganan, and Jenina Joy Chavez.
A book launch was held in Manila on October 17, and photos are on our Facebook page.
