This paper mapped out major donors ’ approaches to peace building in Mindanao and highlighted the following three points: (1) Most donors recognize “ injustice ” as a major root cause of the conflict; (2) Their approaches vary according to their policies and interests; (3) The majority of donors deal with peace building as a secondary goal of their projects, rather than the primary objective. Although previously the whole picture of each donors ’ activities and approaches in Mindanao was unknown, the paper presented such birds eye view with the first hand survey results from Mindanao and Manila.
