Dekalogo is GSPDM’s main platform to deepen public management and governance discourse. It is a free public lecture series where professors, researchers, practitioners and luminaries are invited to discuss and exchange insights with audience on interesting topics related to public management and governance. Inspired by Apolinario Mabini’s El Verdadero Decalogo (The True Decalogue), which expounds on the great Sublime Paralytic’s ideas on the basic tenets of good citizenship, Dekalogo hopes to impart valuable lessons on good governance characterized by ethical servant leadership, patriotism, integrity, and professionalism. The proceedings of each Dekalogo will be published and used as a reference by decision-makers in government and the academic community. 

GSPDM will also hold an Annual International Public Management Conference to bring together scholars and practitioners to vet their research studies and discuss new trends and techniques in public management to solve pressing contemporary issues.
