Forum Series • Mindanao: Fractured Promises, Continuing Challenges

The University of the Philippines Center for Integrative and Development Studies (UP CIDS) is resuming the forum series Mindanao: Fractured Promises, Continuing Challenges online via Zoom and Facebook Live. The second installment of the forum series will be held on August 26, 2020 (Wednesday), while the third forum will happen on September 2, 2020 (Wednesday). Both forums are scheduled from 1:00 to 3:00 PM.

About the Forum Series

The forum series aims to harness the research of the various UP CIDS programs conducting policy-oriented studies to examine some of the issues and concerns that define the Mindanao conundrum and arrive at recommendations addressed to the country’s decision-makers and other stakeholders.

The presentations will tackle political, historical, and cultural issues with specific focus on the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).
