In this region, we work exclusively in the Philippines. The Philippines has suffered two major armed conflicts during the past four decades: a self-determination struggle by Muslim communities in the southern island of Mindanao, involving the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, and a countrywide communist insurgency represented by the National Democratic Front.
Our work currently centres around supporting community security, as well as providing informal advice and mediation support to both peace processes. We work to ensure that these processes are more inclusive and participatory. We also collate and provide analysis on the NDF conflict, which we share with a network of peacebuilders and policymakers interested in this region.
