in five months, three mini-chapters have been written. the first, the introduction, containing an explanatory framework for assessing policy outcomes that considers program outcomes as not independent of political relationships and the governing political economy. the second, on the policy and politics of Kaantabay, explains how the program is a product of a policy environment as well as the exploitation of political opportunity by urban poor groups, elites and state reformers in naga city. the third, on the pre-Kaantabay conditions of 12 study sites provides an ethnographic explanation of the informality and extra-legality of squatter settlements in naga city. only 12 months left to find how these all fit with other data and information yet to be processed, pondered and written.
