Asia Research Brief #33 | Ang 2017 Okupang Pabahay sa Pilipinas: Isang Kontra-Proyekto para sa Maayos na Pabahay at Alternatibong Mundo

This Asia Research Brief, previously published in English, is now available in a Tagalog translation.

Hazel Dizon (Geography) shares her research on a housing occupation by thousands of urban poor near Manila in March 2017 who claimed idle government housing as their own. It examines the impacts of increasingly neoliberal policies and practices on social services as well as the power struggle between the elite and the poor in the Philippines.
