Developments on Contested Land of Mindanao, Philippines: Gawad Kalinga “way” – the means for Restorative Justice,-philippines?locale=gb







Book language:



Any conflict arising over land always has very strong socio-economic and emotional involvement and readily escalates into deadly violence. Likewise any development on a disputed land, whether well intentioned or not, can be very contentious. It is in this respect that this book focuses on how development activities on or about land interact with the land conflict in Mindanao. The book goes ahead to discuss the development and movement approach that Gawad Kalinga, a local NGO in the Philippines used to restore coexistence between Christians and Muslims in Mindanao. It was a people’s power movement that was transformed into a development framework that continues to inspire the Filipinos to love their country and contribute to build it. It is through the lense of Gawad Kalinga that the author suggests ways in which similar approach can be used to develop social movements which brings tangible transform towards peace and development in countries like Kenya.
