In every episode of On The Campaign Trail, veteran journalist John Nery tracks key issues, moments, and personalities in the long run-up to Election Day.
One of these key issues? Human rights.
Advocates have constantly been challenged by President Rodrigo Duterte’s “intentional distortion” of human rights since 2016. Highlighted by the bloody drug war, the culture of impunity has become endemic throughout Duterte’s administration.
What’s the outlook for the human rights situation in the Philippines in 2022?
Joining Nery are Jacqueline de Guia, executive director of the Commission of Human Rights, and Carlos Conde, senior researcher of watchdog group Human Rights Watch.
