Overview

Since taking power in July 2016, President Rodrigo Duterte has made his crackdown on drug users and dealers the focal point of his administration, continuing a brutal campaign of violence. In 2018, Filipino deaths related to the Philippine Drug War peaked at 20,000 people, which was equivalent to the entire population of a rural municipality. Violation of Child Rights is also a big problem in the Philippines, occurring on a wide scale to children in socially troubled areas; many poverty-stricken children being the sons and daughters of sex tourists, who visited the Philippines to buy sex - but who left their children behind, representing a United Nations of parentage, and a generation of Philippine children who want to track down their fathers. Critical, but also deeply sensitive and humane, this book endeavours to improve public policy in the Philippines; by exploring both social scientific and ethical approaches, so that human rights, social equality and public health can be improved in the Philippines.
