2012 saw peaceful Presidential and Parliamentary elections in Timor-Leste, the wind-up of the Australian-led International Stabilisation Force and the conclusion of over 13 years of UN missions. But significant challenges remain. The 2013 Timor-Leste Update, the first to be held at the ANU, brings together leading and emerging scholars and policy analysts working on Timor-Leste to reflect critically on the prospects and challenges for the nation over the next 5-10 years. It is hoped that the Update will be become a biennial event.

The main objective of the Timor Update is to contribute to Australia's knowledge of, and engagement with, Timor-Leste, by providing a public forum to discuss recent developments in Timor-Leste. The Update also aims to strengthen relationships between scholars, government agencies, civil society organisations and research institutions working on Timor-Leste and to help build the profile and capacity of East Timorese researchers and policy analysts.

The 2013 Update is organised around the following themes:
·         Trends in economic development
·         Stability

·         Active citizenship

Confirmed speakers: Laura Abrantes, Nelson Belo, Lurdes Bessa, Meabh Cryan, Deborah Cummins, Rui Feijo, Damian Grenfell, Sue Ingram, Michael Leach, Fidelis Magalhaes, Ines Martins, Catharina Maria, Andrew McWilliam, Jose Neves, Cillian Nolan, Agio Pereira, Douglas Porter, James Scambary, Charlie Scheiner, Nuno Rodrigues Tchailoro, Pyone Myat Thu, Antonio Vitor and Joanne Wallis.

The organising committee comprises a group of academics and higher degree researchers from the ANU, including Lia Kent, Andrew McWilliam, Ruth Nuttall, Janet Hunt, Sue Ingram, Joanne Wallis, Sue Harris-Rimmer, Evan Hynd and Julien Barbara.
