Furthermore, in the months before the release of the award, governments around the world were asked to voice a position in support of either China or the Philippines. The episode spoke volumes about geopolitics intruding into what was normally understood to be a process of law.

Much will depend on whether the respective leaders will be able to quench nationalist sentiment at home. Both Xi Jinping and Duterte face significant challenges. In the Philippines 91% of the population are concerned about the territorial disputes and an unfavourable outcome from talks might turn public opinion against Duterte. In China negotiating with the Philippines will be seen as pandering to a ‘weaker’ power and the US.

I have been in the Philippines since before the election. People knew what Duturte was like because he was Mayor of Davao. The people actually asked him to stand for presidency. Also I don't feel as if the support has died down for him. people here love him despite his actions, people believe he is good for the country.

The long-awaited tribunal ruling on China’s territory grab of the Western Philippine Sea finally emerged on July 12. As expected it was a mostly clean sweep for the Philippines government—judging that the claims under the PRC’s Nine-Dash Line vision were invalid, and its current activities of island reclaiming and resource grabbing were both illegal and harmful to the environment.

Rodrigo Duterte, the controversial presidential candidate and 22-year mayor of Davao known for his crackdown on crime, was elected president of the Philippines. This is of particular concern for human rights advocates who fear the country will slip back into a military dictatorship.

In this video, I talk about my plans for 2016. I give you sneak peeks at my upcoming books, talk about how I’m going to keep improving my blog, and I also talk about my plan to potentially head to Iowa to cover the presidential caucuses next month. Let me know if you’re interested in me providing independent coverage of the Iowa caucuses, akin to what I did with my reporting on #BlackLivesMatter’s Chicago protests.
