ABSTRACT

This study will address the question of how the local states of Marikina and Muntinlupa were able to
pursue transformative goal or reshape social goal concerning the delivery of public goods. Causal
patterns on the dynamics of local states that are amenable to the realization of such goal shall be traced
using Comparative Historical Analysis. Results indicate that institutional arrangements through local
state-led initiatives or mediation after the 1986 democratic transition are conducive to the attainment of
such goal. Results, thereby, initially validate Rueschemeyer and Evans’ theoretical framework on the
state’s efficacy to pursue economic and societal transformation.
