About this site


Welcome to Boholanalysis.

Here, we discuss Bohol, not the way politicians would like to describe it, and certainly not the way tourism promoters would label the island.
Don't take me wrong.
This blog is not about the negative side of Bohol. It is a blog that talks about Bohol, critically, beyond the conventional labels. It is a blog about issues in Bohol and how a citizen like you, or me, views it, from a rather uninvolved and objective lens. It is a blog about Bohol without the hypocrisy, without the hype, absent the intended colors.

Boholanalysis is a site that discusses issues about Bohol and its implications to wider development debates in the country, region, or the world.  Started in 2007, the site has persisted to this day.

It is maintained by Michael Canares, a Boholano based in Tagbilaran City.  He is  a Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program fellow and a development worker from the Philippines. His current preoccupation is development research on issues as poverty, sustainable development, and local politics.
