The Aftermath of the Marawi Siege in Mindanao in the Philippines: Problems and Prospects for Its Rehabilitation
講師Dr. Moctar I. Matuan (Research Consultant, MARADECA, Inc.)
Moctar I. Matuan is a sociologist and anthropologist, currently engaged as a research consultant in the Maranao People Development Center (MARADECA), Inc, an NGO based in Lanao del Sur in the Philippines. He obtained BA in Sociology from Notre Dame University in Cotabato City, MA in Anthropology from University of San Carlos in Cebu City, and Ph.D. in Peace and Development from Notre Dame University. The positions he held include the Director of Dansalan Research Center in Marawi City, Professor at the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and the Executive Director of the Institute of Peace and Development in Mindanao at the Mindanao State University (MSU) in Marawi City. He retired from MSU in 2017. He has also been engaged in inter-religious dialogue movements, and peace and development efforts of several NGOs. He conducted research on the clan feuding among Muslims in Mindanao, which resulted in the following publications.

“Inventory of Existing Ridos in Lanao del Sur (1994-2004). In Rido: Clan Feuding and Conflict Management in Mindanao. Wilfredo Magno Torres III (ed.), Makati City: The Asia Foundation, 2007.
“Responses to Interkin Group Conflict in Northern Mindanao”. In Rido: Clan Feuding and Conflict Management in Mindanao. (Co-authored with E. Montillo-Burton et al.)
講演概要The unfortunate emergence of the extremists in the Middle East countries whose narratives are built on the frustration of the Muslim masses worldwide extended its reach to the young Muslims in the southern Philippines. Together with local extremists, they laid siege to Marawi City in May, 2017, which lasted more than four months. It left the city in total ruins and uninhabitable up to the present, displacing its population. The Philippine government established, and later reorganized, the Task Force Bangon Marawi (Task Force Rise Up Marawi) to lead the rehabilitation, recovery, and reconstruction of Marawi. Unfortunately, however, it has thus far failed to achieve its mandated task for a variety of reasons, which I will discuss in my lecture. I view the present situation with concern because the rising frustration of the people may provide a fertile ground for the recruitment of extremists. With the government inaction, the people are pinning their hope to the new Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) for their eventual return and the rehabilitation of the city.

The Seminar ConceptOn the aftermath of cold war, Japan initiated an engagement with the African frontier through the Tokyo International Conference for Africa Development (TICAD). Since then, Japan had hosted TICAD from 1993 to 2013 after every five years before embarking on three year duration alternating between Africa and Japan as hosts. Besides Japan, there has been a proliferation of similar other actors imitating TICAD process in the recent past whose engagement has emerged as somewhat challenging to Japan’s presence in Africa. Perhaps as a counter measure, or strategic plan to promote inclusion and ownership of TICAD process by the Africans, TICAD 6 was held on African soil for the first time in its history. Whereas the fruits of such measures remains unexplored, and as more other players seems to be taking dominance in Africa, Japan has not relented in her pursuit to engage Africa for achieving sustainable development in the vast and rapidly changing continent.
TICAD’s own origins depicts Japan’s initiative as a pioneer in her relations to Africa. The 2016 TICAD in Nairobi reverberated with symbolism of Africa ownership. Discussions of ownership of development initiatives by Africa are both complex and scarce. When present, elitism pervades prominence. Often, voices of the majority poor who are victims of Africa’s most pressing challenges, are overshadowed by the elite agenda. The disconnect between African ruling class and the majority poor (and the diminishing middle class) is apparent in the so called “African voices”. Since “African voices” is about addressing the challenges unique to majority of Africa, it is important that discussions to comprehend the African voices underscore strategies from the peripheries. In this respect, TICAD process, in upholding its foundational principles, will become a platform that not only incorporates the voices that have historically been disenfranchised, but also opening up new possibilities in mutual engagement.
Thus, this forum will discuss ownership of Africa growth through exploring the foundational principles of agenda 2063 spearheaded by the African Union. An overview of Japan-Africa relations will lay a foundation to two important approaches in exploring ownership. On one hand, a comparative analysis with Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC), focusing on the points of convergence and divergence, and outlining new possibilities thereof. On the other hand, a pertinent question on Japan-Africa engagement in trade and business will be addressed to shed light on emerging possibilities in Japan-Africa ties. Thus, an agenda will be set to explore means through which Japan can deepen its relationship with growing and changing Africa before TICAD 7 in 2019 through an appeal to recognize and appropriate ownership by Africa and her voice thereof.
In sum, this seminar will draw upon comparative cases and case studies to illuminate means of strengthening ownership, partnerships, and improvement on the relationship between the public and private sectors. (Kinyua Laban Kithinji)
