John Harmon Camu, fifth year graduate student from the Industrial Economics Program, recently presented a thesis and was chosen as one of the top three policy papers in “BLUEPRINT 2015:A Public Policy Competition” hosted by the UP Political Society.

With the theme “Sustainable Economic Development,” Mr. Camu presented his thesis with the topic “Assessing the Impact of Public Investments on Human Development Indicators: The Case of the 15 Poorest and 15 Richest Provinces in the Philippines.”

BLUEPRINT is a national contest which aims to provide an avenue to promote the principles of political involvement, political awareness, critical thinking, and progressive leadership among the youth through the formulation of policy proposals that the government may use as a viable and effective means to address the problems and issues confronting the nation. The competition also stresses the importance of increased youth participation in the policy-making process.

Mr. Camu presented the thesis last March 29, 2015, along with classmates Ms. Keren del Rosario, Ms. Marcella Karaan, and Mr. Reynaldo Delos Santos.
