Prof. Felipe B. Miranda is an emeritus professor at the University of the Philippines and former chair of its Department of Political Science. He was past president of the Philippine Political Science Association and the founding vice president of Social Weather Stations. Later, he became the founding president of Pulse Asia Inc.
He is a keen student of politics and feels equally comfortable vigorously chasing it on the streets, leisurely exploring it in university’s classrooms, or willfully unmasking it in the nation’s darkest corridors of power. For the better part of five decades, this intimate exposure to his object of fascination has convinced him of one thing: that where politics is the problem, it, too, must nurture the solution.
