ABSTRACT
The article looks into the increasing role of Mindanao Island in the Philippines as the new regional terrorist haven in Southeast Asia. The author cites that the chronic insurgency on the island, which hinders intervention by the central government to monitor its affairs, could pave the way for the proliferation of terrorism in the area. Rebel commanders preside over some terrorist enclaves in the area, and they shelter foreign jihadis.
