Secure property rights have long been argued as a crucial ingredient in economic growth and an enduring peace, yet conflict has continued to rise in the same areas where IP groups were placed in the driver’s seat, where new investments, development inputs, and royalty payments for the use of IP’s ancestral lands have been secured. How is it then that, despite the passage of a law recognizing ancestral land rights, a fragile peace continues to dominate in these areas? The reasons cited for the impasse are numerous, but most point to the institutional flaws and the weak capacity of actors to implement the Indigenous Peoples’ Rights Act (IPRA) uniformly and equitably. The challenge is also magnified by the enduring armed conflict in the countryside, particularly in ancestral lands, and the history of violence between rival IP groups. This discussion paper introduces an analysis of “extreme cases,” descriptive statistics, and other qualitative evidence to show that identity conflicts are inextricably linked to resource-related political violence and rebellion. This confluence explains the recurring violence more than the institutional weaknesses in the law. It also explains the increase in resource conflicts beneath the proxy war among IP groups in ancestral domain areas.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1580263991451{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Keywords[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]Indigenous peoples rights, resource violence, identity-related violence, ancestral land conflict, Eastern Mindanao[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section][vc_section css=”.vc_custom_1552539323998{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1573696823456{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Recommended Citation[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_tta_accordion active_section=”0″ collapsible_all=”true”][vc_tta_section title=”Chicago Style” tab_id=”1573696858016-9fb05f30-27ed”][vc_column_text]
