In January of this year, the Philippine Commission on Elections declared the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) ratified, with more than 88% of votes in favor for establishing greater autonomy for the Muslim-majority region in the southern island of Mindanao. Now begins the difficult task of formally establishing the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region. As political bodies prepare for the transition and seek new opportunities of representation and peace, they will have to navigate through challenges new and old.
Currently, Federico Magdalena is Faculty Specialist at the Center for Philippine Studies and a faculty affiliate at the UH Manoa Asian Studies Program. His research specializations are on Mindanao, Islam, Philippine society and culture, and globalization of cultures.
