This phenomenon is a shocking surprise to many who have believed religions have been relegated to the background. The secularist worldview believes that “ideologies (state socialism, secular democracy, nationalism, etc.) has replaced religion as the prime ´ethos source' for many nations in the modern era“. This view is now being questioned as religion is returning to reclaim… Continue

Dear Eliseo,

I'm a MA student in Conflict Resolution, and I'm currently conducting research on women world leaders, including Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Corazon Aquino. With your background, I was wondering if you'd have any recommended readings or sources about the aforementioned topic. If so, would you be open to sharing them with me? Thank you very much in advance!
