Greetings of Peace & Solidarity!

The Initiatives for International Dialogue (IID) is honored to share with you its First Issue of Transitional Justice Monitor featuring civil society and our community partners’ initiatives to engage transitional justice issues and challenges in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM). 

This initial issue of Transitional Justice Monitor aims to reflect on the valuable lessons, stories, and learnings from the communities of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) or the bakwits hoping to highlight particularly the Marawi IDPs’ continuing call for a safe and dignified return and justice almost six years after the tragic Marawi siege.   

Through this publication, we echo the just demands of the IDPs to the Philippine government, concerned agencies and policy actors to effect policy changes toward the rebuilding and rehabilitation of Marawi with the welfare and meaningful participation of the IDPs at the core of priorities.

Transitional Justice Monitor seeks to raise public awareness on pressing issues and challenges around the themes of transitional justice, peacebuilding, human security, conflict transformation and social justice as Transitional Justice and Reconciliation (TJR) is an integral aspect of the Annex on Normalization, a prime feature  of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB).

We also hope to generate robust solidarity even beyond the circles of civil society actors, peoples movements and grassroots formations on  the call of the IDPs for “KAMBALINGAN” or their safe and dignified return to Marawi.  

Transitional Justice Monitor will be circulated on our social media platforms and website.

May we invite you to read and enjoy this issue as we look forward to your feedback, contributions and expressions of solidarity.
