Institutional Research

Under the IPC Institutional Research Program, research staff of the Institute of Philippine Culture are able to embark on theoretically-grounded studies on research topics they deem of interest, such as: the "vote of the poor" (what poor voters look for in electoral candidates and the factors that influence their vote); the lives and times of Filipina Overseas Workers; social change initiatives that help bridge the poverty gap; armed conflict, natural disasters, urban development, and population displacements in the Philippines; knowledge needs, acquisition, and use among the Catholic Bishops of the Philippines; and Filipino families in urban informal settlements; among others.
