This special issue of Asian Studies comes after the signing of the Bangsamoro Framework Agreement and the ongoing negotiations between the Philippine government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.
It explores various social, political, and historical issues that underpin the Mindanao conundrum, from treaties, peace agreements and economic development to clan violence, shadow economies, and Lumad self-determination.
Not only does it cover Mindanao from different perspectives, it also points to the pressing need to address complex problems in the ongoing negotiations and beyond.
A few of these articles were presented during the 2010 UP Academic Congress. The rest were subsequently solicited.
