The Ateneo School of Government (ASoG) is awarding this year’s *Metrobank
Foundation Professorial Chair for Public Service and Governance* to *Department
of Budget and Management Secretary Florencio B. Abad.* This is in
recognition of his track record as an exemplary public servant in various
fields of public services such as good governance and people empowerment.
** **
This year’s professorial chair paper will center on the reforms that the
DBM is initiating in making the budget process more transparent and
accountable, particularly looking into the specific initiatives and
efforts, the stakeholders involved, the successes and gains so far, the
misses and challenges, how these efforts address the fundamental/structural
problems of the country such as poverty and inequality, and the kind of
Philippine governance we are expecting to see after his term as DBM
** **
Also, the PODER Program of the Ateneo School of Government will conduct the
public launch of its book “Infusing Reform in Elections: The Partisan
Electoral Engagement of Reform Movements in Post-Martial Law Philippines”.
It provides a political context to the reforms that this administration was
able to put in place as it narrates the electoral partisan engagement of
reform actors in the 1992, 1998, 2004 and 2010 Presidential Elections (Sec.
Butch being one of the most crucial of them mentioned in the book) in order
to win seats in government that allowed them to advance an alternative
reform agenda. In this light, the reforms that Sec. Abad will be presenting
in the lecture springs from such engagement of actors from the civil
society and social movements, which underscores the importance of politics
particularly partisan electoral engagement in achieving development and
reforms in the government. ****

The Ateneo community is invited to witness the ceremonial awarding and
professorial lecture of Secretary Abad, and the public launch of the book
Infusing Reform in Elections on Thursday, March 7, 2013, 4:30 PM at the
Escaler Hall, Ateneo de Manila University.****
