NCPAG PJPA 2006-1-4: Exploring accountability initiatives in Philippine local governance

It is inherently difficult to formulate a single notion of "civic service" as the history of "service" in the Region varies considerably due to different contexts, experiences, cultures, religions and socioeconomic conditions. In order to accurately summarize the notion of service of various countries, one must consider the social, cultural, economic, and political context of "civic service". It is in this context that the article tries to contextualize the meaning of civic service in some countries in the Region such as Vietnam, Korea, China, Mongolia, Thailand, and the Philippines. It also attempts to draw the typology and profile of "service" in the Region. As far as there is yet no systematic analysis of the positive consequences and impacts rendered by civic service to society, the author tries to disclose a number of benefits rendered by "service" and "volunteering." Further analysis is also done to better understand the conceptual dilemmas in civic service and other challenges and issues.
