Recorded on October 24, 2008

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Violence in Mindanao flared in a very serious way this August when The Philippines Supreme Court blocked the signing of a long-negotiated agreement between Moro rebels and the central government.  Now the Supreme Court has declared the deal unconstitutional.  Are the prospects for a sustainable peace in Mindanao dead?  How did the situation reach this impasse?  How does it impact the United States' involvement there?  And what is America's interest in helping its ally resolve the situation? 

Please join us as we look at these questions and others with two uniquely qualified analysts.
