An excerpt from the book “Rido: Clan Feuding and Conflict Management in Mindanao”


By Wilfredo Magno Torres III (Editor)

This volume presents several studies on feuding or clan confl icts, popularly known in Mindanao as rido. This effort is the result of a coordinated research conducted by Mindanao-based civil society organizations and academic institutions with support from the United States Agency for International Development (usaid) and The Asia Foundation. The studies variously mapped the incidence of clan confl icts in Mindanao and conducted in-depth investigations into the root causes of the confl icts, the parties involved, the conditions for their escalation and recurrence, the relationship to other forms of confl ict, and the potential for confl ict resolution.
