Juliano receives Outstanding Graduate Thesis Award for 2014

April 10, 2014

Mr. Hansley A. Juliano, a Lecturer of the Department of Political Science, was recently recognized by the School of Social Sciences for his exemplary and outstanding contribution in the social sciences through his political science masteral thesis, entitled "The Tension Points of Democratic Left Politics in Akbayan's Alliance with the Aquino Administration". In his thesis, Juliano talked about how the leadership of Akbayan Citizens' Action Party, which prioritizes winning electoral positions and getting their stalwarts appointed in bureaucratic offices, appears to deviate from the intent of their allied social movements to address the socio-political issues they carry, as illustrated in the anti-administration stance of Akbayan's labor ally, the Alliance of Progressive Labor and the bolting-out of their rural sector ally, the Pambansang Kilusan ng mga Samahang Magsasaka.
