East Timor: Political Dynamics, Development, and International Involvement

East Timor: Political Dynamics, Development, and International Involvement

Date: June 17, 2009
Creator: Margesson, Rhoda & Vaughn, Bruce
Description: The situation in the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste, which is also known as simply Timor-Leste or East Timor, is relatively calm compared with recent periods of political strife and insurrection. That said, some underlying tensions, such as with the security sector, remain to be resolved. Timor-Leste faces many serious challenges as it seeks to establish a stable democracy and develop its economy. A key challenge for East Timor will be to create enough political stability to focus on building state capacity and infrastructure with resources from the Timor Sea and prevent them from being squandered by corrupt practices.
