National situationer: Roots of conflict and unpeace in the Philippines
MetadataShow full item record
Our topic, National Situationer: Roots of Conflict and Unpeace in the Philippines clearly asserts in itself (which I hope all of us can agree) the presence of conflict and unpeace (and it is not saying directly whether there is or there can be harmony and peace in the Philippines sooner or later). What we wish to find out then are the sources of conflict and unpeace. If we are able to discover them, hopefully we will become more aware of the strategic causes of conflict and unpeace we are experiencing as a people. At the outset let us briefly survey our national situation, with the understanding that there are different perspectives in interpreting it, and then explore its significant roots manifested in history. Hopefully this could help us in trying to strengthen our strategic understanding of our situation; and enable us to incorporate such an understanding in our curriculum in teaching values education.
