The Barangay and the Philippine Drug War – A 4-Part Podcast

These podcasts were developed by the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ) for their PCIJ Story Project. Based on in-depth research and interviews with barangay officials, these podcasts explore the impact of President Rodrigo Duterte’s antidrug campaign on the smallest unit of Philippine governance, the barangay.

Barangay officials have the power to decide the shape of the war on drugs: They can choose to go along with death, to submit to authority, to adapt or resist the government’s mandate.
