    As Filipino citizens, it is our sworn duty and solemn obligation to uphold and defend the Constitution and all the freedoms it guarantees: freedom of speech, of the press, of worship, of assembly, and of choice.

    As Filipino professionals, our unwavering commitment to the ideals of democracy should and must be upheld at all times.

    It is upon these fundamental nationalist principles that the Institute for Strategic Philippine Political Reform and Development was established.

    Composed of young idealists, the Institute was formed to propagate and harness constitutionalism and the rule of law.

    It has no political affiliation, no ideological bias, no government interest nor hidden political agenda to advance.

    In its desire to be of service to the Filipino people, it is sponsoring several pages of the Chan Robles Virtual Law Library for purposes of featuring political and related websites of significance on the World Wide Web.

    It is our fervent wish that the materials found therein will contribute enormously in awakening our people to the burning issues confronting them as a people and as a nation.
