Experiences of Disrespect: The Impetus for Filipino Farmers? Struggle for Land Ownership
Dr. Rowena V. Isidro, John Paul J. Petrola
Abstract: This study attempted to provide analysis of the current social conditions of the farmers in the Philippines. This is grounded on the idea that this piece of work may help in addressing the issue of landlessness and poverty among Filipino farmers. The researchers argue that the farmers, who are considered the countrys top food producers, have been victims of various forms of injustice by the society, thus, the most that they could do is to struggle for the recognition of their rights and privileges as beneficiaries of agrarian reform programs by the Philippine government. Employing Honneths theory of the struggle for recognition, the researchers showed that these experiences of disrespect drive the Filipino farmers to struggle for land ownership.
