IN PRINT NOW: Research on Youth Vulnerability to Violent Extremism in the ARMM


The rapid rise of violent extremism (VE) has been a top concern both for governments and vulnerable communities around the world. In recent years, there have been increasing reports of young Muslims joining VE groups in the conflict-affected regions of Mindanao in the southern Philippines. Until now, there has been little data available that policymakers can use as a basis for interventions to respond effectively to this threat. This research aims to provide a preliminary picture of vulnerability of young people to VE and to inform appropriate responses from government agencies and local communities.


IAG wishes to thank the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (HD) for its assistance in the conduct of this research and the publication of this report, and acknowledges the Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands for its financial support.
