The Crisis in Timor-Leste: Understanding the Past, Imagining the Future
edited by Dennis Shoesmith
This book offers a collection of papers originating in a symposium, ‘The Crisis in Timor-Leste: Understanding the Past, Imagining the Future’, held at Charles Darwin University on 13 November 2006. Together, the papers in this volume address the historical, social and political causes of unrest in Timor-Leste, explaining the violence and rebellion of 2006 in a larger context. By doing this they identify ways to respond to the causes of unrest, particularly the social and developmental strategies the East Timorese can pursue in order to negotiate the transition to a stable, democratic and viable state.
