This book is a timely response to the increased international focus on peace-building problems arising from population displacement and post-conflict state fragility. It considers the relationship between property and resilient customary systems in conflict-affected East Timor, including micro-studies of customary land and population displacement during the periods of Portuguese colonization and Indonesian military occupation. It analyses the development of laws relating to customary land in independent East Timor (Timor Leste) and is of interest to property scholars, anthropologists, academics and practitioners in the emerging field of peace and conflict studies.
