ISD and US Embassy sponsor international confab
The International Studies Department of the College of Liberal Arts and the Public Affairs Section of the United States Embassy sponsored the Third Annual Conference of the American Studies Institute on May 24-25 at the Marilen Gaerlan Conservatory.
The international conference focused on the theme of Conflict Management and Resolution: The US Experience. It featured paper readers from foreign universities such as George Mason University, Indiana University, National University of Singapore, and Tamkang University, as well as Philippine universities such as Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University, Miriam College, and University of San Jose-Recoletos.
Dr. Renato de Castro of the Political Science Department and Br. Gregory Wright, FSC, of the History Department read papers on Managing Contention between Allies: Special Relations and Alliance Politics in Philippine-US Security Relations, 1990-2002 and Conflict Management and Resolution: Some US Experiences, circa 1898, respectively.
Economics prof published in international journal
Titled The Effect of Foreign Entry and Ownership Structure on the Philippine Domestic Banking Market, the study of Dr. Angelo Unite of the Economics Department and Dr. Michael Sullivan, associate professor of the University of Nevada-Las Vagas, was recently accepted for publication in the Journal of Banking and Finance (JBF).
The JBFs annual acceptance rate is about 17 percent of the total number of submissions that amounts to approximately 400 papers per year. Its Board of Associate Editors includes well-known senior researchers from the major centers of excellence inside and outside the USA. According to the survey results of Zivney and Reichenstein (1994), JBF is regarded as a particularly appropriate outlet for scholars who are primarily interested in influencing finance scholars and can be seen as the major finance journal specializing in the capital markets and financial institutions area.
Unite and Sullivans paper is based on a team project of the DLSU Angelo King Institute for Economic and Business Studies, which was funded by the Philippine APEC Study Center Network.
