After forty six years of peace process, the Philippine government has now granted an autonomous government for its Muslim population. The long history of the conflict and the failed approaches to resolve it have created deep divisions among the Bangsamoro and the Filipino people, which regards any peace agreements with distrust or, at the most, fortified confidence. With this, as a basis of analysis, the researcher used several theories particularly the Moral Theory of Justice by (Rawls 1971), the Lay Theory of Peace by (Leshem and Halperin 2020) and the Conflict Transformation by (Lederach 1996). These theories have played significant role in examining the Bangsamoro peace process which has been now an ideal model to the conflicting areas around the world. Furthermore, the data used in this research was purely qualitative as it is gained from reliable and authentic books, journals, and first-hand sources such as Key Informant Interviews (KII) and Focus Group Discussions (FGD). More precisely, the main aims of this paper are to examine the previous efforts in relation to post-conflict reconstruction and will delve into important issues and challenges in the Bangsamoro peace process that can impede peacebuilding.
