The Asia Foundation is pleased to invite you to attend a panel discussion on “Dynamics of Gender and Conflict in Mindanao.” Decades of conflict in Mindanao, the second largest island in the Philippines, have heavily impacted the lives of men and women, including shifts in gender roles and mobility. Panelists will discuss findings from a newly-released field study of Mindanao that documents challenges and opportunities in engaging women and men in local and national peacebuilding, drawing on The Asia Foundation’s long experience working in the Philippines on conflict prevention, mitigation, and resolution. This panel will feature key speakers on this topic who have been integrally involved with this work:

  • Steven Rood, Country Representative, Philippines and Pacific Island Nations, The Asia Foundation
  • Wilfredo Torres, Senior Program Officer, Conflict Management Program, The Asia Foundation Philippines office
  • Leslie Dwyer, Assistant Professor of Conflict Analysis and Anthropology, George Mason University
  • Moderator: Eileen Pennington, Deputy Director of the Women’s Empowerment Program, The Asia Foundation
