Although no papers on East Timor yet the following papers will be interesting for those doing comparative work.
The Centre for International Governance and Justice at the Australian National University has been pursuing a research project named 'Building Democracy and Justics after Conflict'. The aim of the project is to advance new ways of thinking about building the structures for democracy and justice after conflict. The focus is the potential contribution of international law and regulatory theory to this enterprise. War weakens democratic governance and the capacity to deal with crimes committed during the conflict. The international community's response to this has been haphazard. Our aim is to develop innovative theoretical models to ground international norms about governance and justice after conflict, and practical proposals to implement them.
The Working Papers for the Building Democracy and Justice After Conflict
Project are now available at:
Working paper 1: The role of the United Nations Security Council
Working paper 2: The United Nations Peacebuilding Commission
Working paper 3: The United Nations Democracy Fund
Working paper 4: The Solomon Islands Truth and Reconciliation Commission
Working paper 5: The Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission
Working paper 6: The Liberian Transitional Peace Process, 2003-2006
The objective of this series of working papers, focusing on particular institutions, mechanisms and regions, is to assess the effect of multilateral attempts to promote democracy and human rights in post-conflict situations. We examine how ideas of democracy and human rights have affected these processes so far and with what results.
We welcome comments on these working papers. Please send comments to Dr Jeremy Farrall-jeremy.farrall at anu.edu.au
