The Mindanao Think Tank (MTT) is a multi-stakeholder body based in Cotabato City and supported by the HD Centre. It seeks to inform communities on the peace process in Mindanao, solicit their opinions and feed these into the peace process through the parties. The group includes leading individuals from the Muslim, Christian and Indigenous People’s communities. In the first half of 2010, the MTT conducted over 30 community and sectoral consultations and workshops, the results of which are included in four publications released in September 2010.

This publication, the first in the series, offers recommendations of prominent observers of the peace process to the new Philippine President.
