This resource book is primarily a reference material on peace and human rights. It can be used by teachers to familiarize themselves with the concepts, principles, categories, and treaties related to peace and human rights. It also provides information on the history of Mindanao and the Mindanao conflict where human rights and peace issues have been central concerns.
The human rights community will demand and expect a substantial and meaningful program of government that is based on human rights principles and a system of governance that is transparent, responsible, based on the rule of law, accountable and participatory.
While government and analysts have yet to agree if it is just a mere economic slowdown or a recession the country is facing ahead, the initial impact of a bigger economic storm are already being felt by workers across the nation.
