The UP Center for Integrative and Development Studies has released the narrative reports on Radicalization in East Asia, a conference on the expanding influence of the Islamic State in the region.
The forum was held in May 2015 and features presentations from experts from the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) based in Singapore. The conference was jointly organized by the RSIS, the Philippine Center for Islam and Democracy (PCID), the University of the Philippines College of Law, UP CIDS and Mindanao State University.
“Radicalization is both a challenge and a threat to the Philippines and the international community. There exists the appalling interconnectedness of terrorism at the international scale with the regional and local levels. Nonetheless, there is hope in reintegration, religious rehabilitation, and sustainable peacebuilding programs in its mitigation.”
