Despite some positive developments during 2002, in particular the signing in May of the implementing guidelines of the June 2001 peace agreement between the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the return of nearly all those displaced by the 2000 conflict, armed clashes between the MILF and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and paramilitary groups have persistently triggered new displacements during 2002, mainly in the southern island of Mindanao.
