New Research on Timor-Leste
A TLSA Research Conference

Avenida Cidade de Lisboa, Dili, Timor-Leste 29-30 June 2017

This two-day conference for researchers is organised by the Timor-Leste Studies Association (TLSA). The TLSA is an interdisciplinary, international research network focussed on all aspects of research into East Timorese society, including politics and history, economics, communications, health, language, agriculture and science.
During this year's conference there will be two special streams, the first on the theme of 'Elections' co-convened by Clinton Fernandes and Mica Barreto Soares, and the second on the theme of 'Gender Research in Timor-Leste' co-convened by Sara Niner and Therese Tam.
Papers examining Timor-Leste's regional and international relationships, and East Timorese perspectives on regional and global issues, are also encouraged. The ‘New Research on Timor-Leste’ conference will be co-hosted by the National University of Timor-Lorosa’e, Swinburne University of Technology, and the University of Lisbon.
