The Philippines

Located in the southern region of the Philippines, Mindanao has been the site of armed conflict for decades, if not centuries. Complex patterns of conflict as well as attempts at fostering peaceful coexistence have evolved among and between Mindanao's ‘tri-people': the native indigenous peoples (IPs), the Islamic 'Moro" communities, and the predominantly Christian Filipino settlers from other regions. Against the backdrop of an internationally acclaimed peace process, this chapter presents the reflections of experienced civil society and indigenous leaders on the efforts to bring human security to Mindanao and its diverse peoples.
