PDF : Developing Political Parties in the Bangsamoro: An Assessment of Needs and Opportunities (The Asia Foundation: 2014)
Peace negotiations with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front in the southern Philippines have led to agreements that include the establishment of a new “ministerial” (parliamentary) form of government for an autonomous region. Given that political parties are notoriously weak in the Philippines as a whole, there is a need for special efforts so that genuinely principled parties in the Bangsamoro can help hold the regional government accountable to its constituents. This assessment of the potential for political party system development can be used to inform design of future programs to support party strengthening activities as an integral part of the peace process.
