In June 2022, Taylor Rodier, a graduate student in Seton Hall’s School of Diplomacy and International Relations, published in the Journal of Global Strategic Studies. Rodier’s article titled “Duterte and the Alliance Behavior of the Philippines” explores the shift in the Philippines’ foreign policy under President Rodrigo Duterte. Rodier examined how big of an influence an individual had on a country’s foreign policy, whether Duterte was exceptionally important or whether this is just a longstanding pattern of alliance behavior that is impacted by the Philippine’s own domestic politics and regional security environment.
