Brian Wampler was invited by the Philippine National Political Science Association to give a talk on Feb. 23 at De La Salle University in Manila. The talk also was streamed live on Facebook so faculty and students at other universities across the country could participate in the seminar.

The talk was titled “Democracy at Work: Moving beyond elections to improve social well-being” and is based on a co-authored article that will be published this month in the American Political Science Review. Wampler works with Mike Touchton, formally at Boise State and now an assistant professor at the University of Miami, and Natasha Sugiyama, an associate professor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, on issues related to the quality of democracy and human development.

While in the Philippines, Wampler was able to conduct eight interviews with senior government officials and civil society activists as part of an ongoing research project.
