"This book will surely enrich the public debate on federalism. It will provide the Filipinos with needed data on how the Federal System once embedded into our Constitution would benefit our people."

- Aquilino "Nene" Pimentel Jr., former Senate President, "Father of the Local Government Code"

"We of the Ateneo de Manila University, through our School of Government, are glad to make this contribution to the ongoing conversation about federalism in the Philippines. It is our hope that this simple Q & A will empower more Filipinos to engage themselves in this vital issue."
