Conflict Management in the Philippines

The Philippines suffers from endemic conflicts on many levels, some arising out of traditional cleav – ages and others from the complex responses of a society undergoing rapid change. Political insta – bility, intra-community conflicts over natural resources, and the conflicts in Mindanao in par- ticular, continue to undermine efforts to improve the country’s economy and governance. The Asia Foundation aims to address conflicts through enhanced conflict resolution mechanisms; improved communication channels within affected commu- nities and between government and com munity groups; and policy-oriented substantive discussions with inputs from key stakeholders.
