Eye of the Storm
The year 2006 was marked by storms. As Typhoons Milenyo, Reming and Senyang
came and destroyed properties and took lives, and as politicians engaged in
political maneuverings pushed for constitutional assembly to change our
current system of government, our countrymen were left in the eye of the
storm, literally and figuratively.
Intersect, the quarterly magazine of the Institute on Church and Social Issues
presents its National Situationer of 2006 amidst the eye of the storm.
Titled Moving Forward, the issue sheds light on the countrys situation
through the policy statement of the Society of Jesus Social Apostolate (SJSA),
a network of institutes and agencies under the social apostolate arm of the
Society of Jesus. The issue features articles on good governance, asset
creation and redistribution for the poor, environmental stewardship, cultural
regeneration and Mindanaos peace and development. Among the articles
are: Undermining Democratic Institutions and Moving the Mindanao Peace
Process Forward, both by Dr. Fermin Adriano; Inequality Matters, by Dr.
Anna Marie Karaos; Frustrating the Political Will, by Emmanuel Alfonso,
