Dr. Charmaine Willoughby unpacks Filipinos' views of ASEAN

Dr. Charmaine Willoughby, ARS Senior Advisor, sat down with Rappler editor-at-large Marites Vitug on its program Southeast Asia Speaks to discuss the growing importance of the Philippines' foreign relations in the coming 2022 elections.


"The Philippines is part of Southeast Asia, yet in many instances feels distant from the rest of the region both geographically and culturally.


Still, ASEAN countries face the same issues, including the long-running maritime issues with China.


On Thursday, December 9, Rappler editor-at-large Marites Vitug speaks to international relations expert Charmaine Willoughby of the De La Salle University (DLSU) on how Filipinos view the rest of Southeast Asia, and how this affects regional cooperation and interaction.


Willoughby is an associate professor at DLSU’s Department of International Studies.


Will foreign relations become an important campaign issue for the 2022 national elections?" - Rappler
