The Asia Foundation’s new book, Built on Dreams, Grounded in Reality, is a set of case studies written primarily by individuals involved in the intense political battles to introduce transformative economic policy reforms in the Phillipines.

Five successful and two unsuccessful cases are covered:

> Telecommunications
> Sea transport
> Civil aviation
> Water privatization
> Property rights
> Tax administration
> Grains agency

The speakers will present a model for engendering transformative institutional change developed from the cases. The seminar will also present the current research and programs of AusAID and The Asia Foundation that seek to apply the model to social sector reforms.

This seminar is presented by the Development Policy Centre at the Crawford School of Public Policy.
