The 2022 Philippine presidential elections culminated with the election of Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr and Sara Duterte to the Philippine Presidency and Vice Presidency, respectively. Under the UniTeam Alliance, they now face numerous challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic, economic instability, and political challenges in the South China Sea. Professor Allen Hicken of the University of Michigan and Professor Paul Hutchcroft of Australian National University will discuss the dynamics of the recent election, the electoral results, and observations on how the new administration of Marcos Jr. has been faring thus far.

Allen Hicken is a professor of political science at the University of Michigan. He studies political institutions and political economy in developing countries. His primary focus has been on political parties and party systems in developing democracies and their role in policymaking.
