About this episode
Atty. Frances Estipona embodies the virtues of principled and diligent service. Her career has spanned NGO to government positions that thoroughly affect society and its appreciation of human rights and how we interact with the structures of power.
In today's episode she'll talk about all the different things that she did across the various hats she's worn. In the Human Rights Victims Claims Board, she assessed the claims of human rights victims on the strength of a dispassionate point system. In the Commission on Elections, she was able to peek behind the curtain at the mundane aspects of working in a collegial body like COMELEC to decide election controversies. Currently, with the Commission on Human Rights, she ensures that persons deprived of liberty have their human rights respected.
