Timor-Leste: International intervention, gender and the dangers of negative peace

Susan Harris-Rimmer

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    Timor-Leste is a compelling example for analysis of ‘diminishing conflicts’. Most of the research on the conflict there during the 1975-1999 period treats it as an international armed conflict involving Indonesia, one seen as resolved through the humanitarian intervention by UN peacekeeping forces in late 1999. Analysis from 1999 to the present day often presents Timor-Leste as a rare example of a ‘successful’ UN transitional administration and peace-keeping operation, albeit with unexpected domestic flare-ups.
