What We're Reading
April 2021 | Stigma, Shame, and Fear: Navigating Obstacles to Peace in Mindanao
This month, RESOLVE highlights recommended readings from the Policy Note, "Stigma, Shame, and Fear: Navigating Obstacles to Peace in Mindanao." In this note, author Haroro J. Ingram explores how stigma, shame, and fear may act as obstacles but also opportunities that need to be understood and appropriately harnessed in disengagement and reintegration initiatives. In the Policy Note, Ingram includes a framework of recommendations that are largely grounded in peacebuilding approaches. The publications in this What We’re Reading were suggested by the author to offer a more in-depth look at the history of peace processes in Mindanao, the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao, ‘peace spoilers’ in Mindanao, applying the linkage approach to inform propaganda analysis and PCVE programs, and peacebuilding approaches to disengagement and reintegration.
