Rebellion, Political Violence and Shadow Crimes in the Bangsamoro

This report presents an assessment of the data gathered using the Bangsamoro Conflict Monitoring System (BCMS) from 2011 to 2013, which captures robust evidence of violent conflict in provinces comprising the proposed Bangsamoro territory in the Philippines. The lack of a better understanding about the causes of conflict has hampered development and peacebuilding efforts that can deal effectively with the enduring violence that afflicts parts of the country, especially in Mindanao.

Applying a Violence Intensity Index in the Bangsamoro

The central objective is to develop an evaluative tool for conflict transformation in the Bangsamoro. A tool that enables development and peace building actors to determine priorities for action that can shape policies and plans aiming to reduce violent conflict. 

Violence in the Bangsamoro and Southern Mindanao

Violent conflict incidents in the Davao Region (excluding Davao City) outnumbered those in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) by four to one. There were 28,325 incidents in the Davao Region compared to 6,759 in the ARMM.

The Philippines: Renewing Prospects for Peace in Mindanao

Hopes are high that one of the world’s longest-running civil conflicts can be resolved in the Philippines. The newly-elected president must act on his commitment to the outgoing administration’s promise of autonomy for the southern Bangsamoro (Muslim Nation) population. Failure to do so risks more lawlessness or reigniting the insurgency.

The Radicalisation of Indonesian Women Workers in Hong Kong

The latest report from the Institute for Policy Analysis of Conflict (IPAC), looks at how a tiny cell of some 50 extremist domestic workers has developed within the 153,000-strong Indonesian community in Hong Kong.

“Some of these women were drawn in by jihadi boyfriends they met online,” says Nava Nuraniyah, IPAC analyst. “But some joined ISIS as a path to empowerment.”
