UP-Center for Integrative and Development Studies
Featured Partner Institution

Since the 1990s, the University of the Philippines-Center for Integrative and Development Studies (UP-CIDS) has been convening programs on a wide array of issues, ranging from European studies to Asia-Pacific and Philippine concerns. It has also been at the forefront of endeavors in the 1990s and 2000s toward understanding the dynamics of peacebuilding, especially in Mindanao. Beginning in 2014, UP-CIDS has been organizing research programs, roundtable discussions, and forums on ASEAN integration, national marine policy review, migration, environmental governance, sustainable energy, and China Studies, among others.

UP-CIDS spans various perspectives, methodologies, and ideologies in its conduct of basic and policy-oriented research. The Center harnesses the University’s multidisciplinary expertise in its studies on critical fields. Its mandate is to develop, organize, and manage research issues of national significance. Such issues, because of their importance and inherent complexity, require an integrative and collaborative approach and also more sophisticated research methodologies and skills; encourage and support research and study on these issues by various units of the University and individual scholars; secure funding from public and private persons and agencies; and ensure that the research outputs and recommendations of the Center are published and openly disseminated.

UP-CIDS was recognized as a top contributor by sharing more than 300 publications for 2023 alone. The award was given during the 2023 SERP-P Network Annual Symposium and Meeting on November 29, 2023, at Richmonde Hotel Ortigas.
