The study trip was made possible thanks to the generosity of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) of the Republic of the Philippines, and co-organized by Ateneo de Manila University as a research partnership in the form of an “Urban Laboratory: Governing the Large Metropolis and Innovations from/for the Global South.”
Through visits to Makati, Pasig City, and the historical city of Manila, as well as countless meetings with local professors, students, city officials, and company representatives, the GLM students strove to grasp the fascinating machinery of this complicated megalopolis. This study trip report is a humble attempt to synthesize all that students have experienced, and to explain the nature of governance in Metro Manila.
