Making Autonomy Real? What's Happening with the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao in the Philippines

  • The Puck Building Mulberry Room (map)

Join independent analyst and consultant David Timberman -- coming straight from the region -- for a conversation about current developments in the creation of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM). 

With a plebiscite earlier this year, the creation of the BARMM took its final steps and the official inauguration of the Bangsamoro Transition Authority is imminent. The BARMM replaces the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao, a previous effort at negotiating autonomy between the Philippine government and the Moro National Liberation Front, which was widely viewed as a failure. The establishment of the BARMM represents the outcome of decades of negotiations and faces significant challenges for security, governance, and development.

David Timberman is an independent scholar and development practitioner who has addressed the challenges of democratic politics and governance in Southeast Asia for over thirty years.
