Three research studies were featured in the last CSWCD Research Forum held last December 3, 2013. Dr. Judy Taguiwalo of Department of Women and Development Studies shared a historical research entitled Revolutionary Movements and Filipino Women’s Emancipation: The Katipunan and the Communist Party of the Philippines. She discussed the participation, contribution and recognition of women in two revolutionary organizations. The second presenter, Dr. Aleli Bawagan of the Department of Community Development, presented her group’s study entitled Outcomes of Participation of PO Leaders in Local and National Governance. Seven case studies were conducted to examine the positive and negative outcomes of participation of people’s organizations in mainstream politics. On the other hand, Prof. Justin Nicholas of the Department of Social Work shared his research entitled Action Research on Disability, Livelihood and Poverty. He discussed the socio-economic situation of persons with disabilities and the strategies used by them and their family to support the family’s basic needs.
As an exploratory measure, the Research Forum was held in the evening to allow graduate students to attend and participate.
The forum is a regular CSWCD activity organized by the Research and Extension for Development Office.
