Great Decisions: Mirror to the World: The Philippines under Duterte

Tuesday, February 18, 2020

(Weekly simulcast of Great Decisions 2020) MIRROR TO THE WORLD: THE PHILIPPINES UNDER DUTERTE Julie McCarthy, international correspondent, Manila Bureau, NPR What does Duterte’s rise signal to the rest of the world? Since the election of Rodrigo Duterte, the Philippines has distanced itself from its longtime alliance with the U.S. and pivoted toward China. Equally troubling has been Duterte’s largescale war on drugs that many criticize for its brutality. What does the future hold for U.S. relations with the Philippines? With a career spanning 25 years as a foreign correspondent, Julie McCarthy offers an on-the-ground assessment of the changes taking place in the Philippines. A highly decorated journalist, she’s covered Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and South America, winning multiple awards, including several Peabodys for her coverage of the world.
