Notes from the Academy: Filipino Perspectives on Liberal Training in Germany

This collection gathers the reflections of Filipino alumni of the International Academy for Leadership (IAF) seminars. It presents fresh liberal insights spurred by trainings in Gummersbach, Germany and other important IAF venues. The alumni take with them ideas for liberal solutions and strategies, with the hopes of challenging the status quo back home, and also addressing issues of education reform, media, governance, globalization and human rights.
