Albert E. Alejo, SJ

Board member

Albert E. Alejo, SJ, a Filipino Jesuit priest, poet and anthropologist, has worked intimately with NPWJ since 2017, especially in the international struggle against impunity in the wake of widespread extrajudicial killings in the Philippines. He brings into this partnership decades of experience from his diverse advocacies which involved engaging in peace negotiation and fighting corruption, organizing formal and informal labor groups, asserting indigenous people’s rights, producing music videos and documentaries for faith-based political education, researching on indigenous philosophy, promoting ecological conversion, providing sanctuary to whistleblowers as well as sharing ministry with cancer survivors.

Among his books are Generating Energies in Mount Apo: Cultural Politics in a Contested Environment and Ehemplo: Spirituality of Shared Integrity in Philippine Church and Society. He holds a doctorate in social anthropology from the School of Oriental and African Studies (London) and now lectures at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the Pontifical Gregorian University (Rome).
