Conference overview

Beyond the Crisis in Timor-Leste: Options for future stability and development

Over 200 people attended this extremely successful seminar, which 
included 12 speakers, including five from Timor-Leste and the 
Timor-Leste Ambassador to Australia. The discussion covered the 
background to the current crisis and highlighted the complexity of 
the problem and the differing views as to how deep seated 
disagreements have played out. The demands of the newly elected 
government for both a police and a military force in addition to an 
intelligence unit without a clear policy or mandate for any of them 
was considered an important factor in the current problems.
