The on-going Marawi Siege highlights the continuing threat of violence in the southern Philippines. Beyond its immediate humanitarian cost, it has already emboldened and united extremist networks across Southeast Asia. The Marawi siege is a result of both the pervasive conflict affecting Mindanao and the emergence of new transnational extremist networks. The Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue has been working to resolve conflict in the Philippines since 2005.This event aims to bring to Malaysia the voices of researchers and practitioners working at the frontlines of the conflict in the southern Philippines.
