Kalusugan Coalition, Inc. (KC), the National Federation of Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA), the Filipino American Legal Defense and Education Fund (FALDEF), and Pilipino American Unity for Progress (UniPro) presents Dynasties in Democracies: The Political Side of Inequality, a forum on the political dynasties in the Philippines.

This forum includes a presentation by David Yap of the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) Policy Center, co-author of a recent study on the impact of dynastic politics in the Philippines.

Inequality in the world’s poorest countries is considered one of the main barriers to development. However, inequality is about much more than the über-rich and the destitute – it is about access to political power. This study looks at political dynasties, where leadership is passed down through family ties, to see if these are a cause of the persistent social and economic divides.
