On 21 January 2019, a referendum will take place in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) in the Philippines.

As we count down the days to this crucial vote, Conciliation Resources and partners are working to ensure voters are adequately informed.
The Global Peacebuilding Coalition, a new effort by the world’s leading peacebuilding and conflict resolution organisations, is pleased to announce Madeline Rose as its Director of Coalition Campaigns and Policy.
In the predominantly Muslim region of Western Mindanao in the Philippines, we are working with communities to resolve local conflicts, and strengthen relationships between them and local authorities.
