Partnership


The Building an Inclusive Democracy Consortium is a cross-institutional collaboration among researchers from four institutions: AIM Rizalino S. Navarro Policy Center for Competitiveness (formerly the AIM Policy Center) of the Asian Institute of Management, the Ateneo School of Government of Ateneo de Manila University, the College of Liberal Arts of De La Salle University, and the National College of Public Administration and Governance of the University of the Philippines Diliman. The specific goal of the partnership, which started in 2011, is to produce and disseminate the latest research and evidence on political and economic reforms in the Philippines and in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). 

The partnership aims to leverage the expertise of researchers to the much wider practice of policymaking, spanning the areas of governance, anti-corruption, and institutional reforms in order to spur a stronger understanding among reform advocates, development practitioners, and the youth on the most effective strategies and tools for building a more inclusive democracy and a more competitive market economy.
