Abstract

The ‘home-grown’ turn in international relations (IR) theory emerged to describe original theorising of non-Western IR from the periphery in the periphery. Enthused with the indigenisation movement in the Philippines as our country belongs to the periphery, we delve into pre-theorisations of home growning by applying it to Philippine philosophical, politicohistorical, and psycho-anthropological concepts in a schematic analysis. This paper also deliberated the significance of ‘paglundag kasama ang wika’ (existential immersion with the Filipino language), ‘pantayong pananaw’ (perspective from-us-for-us, Filipinos), ‘pagsasakatutubo mula sa labas’ (indigenisation-from-without), and ‘pagpapalitaw ng nasa loob’ (indigenisation from within) in abstracting non-Western IR concepts. We contend that Philippine languages play a central role in the Filipino lived experience of the ‘international’ towards the possibility of contribution to the indigenisation and home-growness of IR as an academic discipline in the Philippines.
