CORRUPTIONARY©, a glossary of corruption-related words, was launched to the media and the public on April 7, 2007, 10 – 11:30 a.m. at the Popular Bookstore, T. Morato Ext. Corner Timog Avenue, Quezon City.
Said to be the first of its kind in the Philippines, the book is a publication of CenPEG’s Dapat Tapat anti-corruption advocacy. It was based on a research of Political Science students from the University of the Philippines (Manila) under CenPEG’s summer Volunteers Integration Program (VIP). Many of the corruption-related words came from sources in various government agencies and victims of corruption who preferred to remain anonymous.
CORRUPTIONARY© is also part of the University of the Philippines’ (Manila) Centennial Publications in line with the state university’s 100th founding anniversary.
