NI-CO is delighted to announce the award of our first contract working with Parliamentarians on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. The project will be delivered in partnership with Politics Plus and has been designed to strengthen democracy in the former Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao, Bangsamoro. Building upon a study programme to Northern Ireland for Philippine legislators organised by NI-CO in November 2014, this UK funded capacity building programme will assist the transition to a new Parliament in 2016 by building an effective legislative secretariat to support a professional cadre of elected members. The project has been developed with the full support of the Government in the Philippines and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and will prove vital to the successful implementation of the Bangsamoro Agreement and addressing the existing dynastic politics of patronage and warlordism in the region.
