About IID
Established in 1988, the Initiatives for International Dialogue (IID) is a Philippines-based advocacy institution promoting human security, democratization and people-to-people solidarity. IID conducts policy advocacy and campaign programs on Burma, Mindanao, Southern Thailand, West Papua, and East Timor. It established the Asia-Pacific Coalition for East Timor (APCET) in 1994 that spearheaded a regional people’s solidarity movement for the then occupied nation. In 2000, it established the Mindanao Peoples Caucus (MPC) – a platform and network of grassroots organizations, communities and NGOs affected and engaged in the conflict in Mindanao. MPC meanwhile established the “Bantay Ceasefire” (Ceasefire Watch) a network of civilians in the conflict areas monitoring the implementation of the official ceasefire agreement between the Government of the Philippines (GPH) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). And together with other peace networks, IID led the establishment of the Mindanao Peaceweavers (MPW), the broadest peace network for Mindanao in the country and currently serves as its secretariat.

IID is also the secretariat of the Asia-Pacific Solidarity Coalition (APSOC), Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict – Southeast Asia (GPPAC-SEA), and the Free Burma Coalition (FBC) –Philippines. IID is a co-founder and steering committee member of the Alternative ASEAN Network for Burma (ALTSEAN-Burma) and the World Forum for Democratization in Asia (WFDA); a working group member of the Burma Partnership (BP) and was a lead member of the National Organizing Committee of the Philippine Parliamentarian Caucus on Democracy in Myanmar. IID is also Founding Steering Committee member of the International Coalition for the Responsibility to Protect (ICRtoP).

IID anchors and serves as the secretariat of Asian Circle 1325, a loose network of women partners in the region from conflict-affected areas, that promotes the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on women, peace and security. It is also a founding member of the national network on women, peace and security called WE Act 1325 (Women Engaged in Action on UNSCR 1325).

IID’s network and coalition-building thrust reflects its grounded and broad presence in both the macro (regional, international) and local (MPC, MPW) arenas.

Networks and Linkages

The networks and linkages IID have established or become a part of reflects the breadth and depth of IID’s engagement in varying levels and arenas– be they local, national, regional or global. IID plays a key role in most of these networks being the secretariat of GPPAC-SEA, MPW, APSOC, Asian Circle 1325, FBC-P; its Executive Director elected as Co-Chair of GPPAC and as a founding Steering Committee member of WFDA, SAPA, ALTSEAN, and ICRtoP.

IID is also active in BP as a working group member, in the annual ASEAN Civil Society Conference (ACSC) that shadow the ASEAN summits, a convenor of the Waging Peace Philippines and Kilos Kapayapaan at Katarungan (KILOS- Act for Peace and Justice), which is currently the broadest network of peace-builders in the country.

This document contains:

  • Don’t forget East Timor

Former Bishop Emeritus of the Japanese Catholic Council for Justice and Peace, Bishop Aloisius Nobuo Soma begins his address by emphasising the UN’s primary role in facilitating self-determination and the independence of former colonies. He argues that the Indonesian government’s behaviour towards East Timor has completely gone against this priority and has deprived Timor of its rightful independence from Portugal. The Bishop emphasises the eight resolutions passed by the UN and Indonesia’s ignorance of them. Next, the Bishop makes an appeal to Indonesia and its core principles asking it to respect the rights of the Timorese and establish peace. The Bishop then explains that despite the treatment the people of East Timor have received from Indonesia, the former do not intend to cause any issues for the latter should they become independent. The Bishop then appeals to the UN to use its power to rectify the situation of the East Timorese while emphasising a Timorese Bishop’s call for decolonisation. He describes the transnational religious advocacy network surrounding the plight of the Timorese. He discusses the importance of NGOs in educating the public and pressuring governments to act. The Bishops ends his speech with a pledge of solidarity with the East Timorese.

The Report and Proceedings of APCET was published by the University of the Philippines in Dilman, Quezon City, Philippines.
