Vulnerable Groups and Security in Timor-Leste: An Overview

Published: May 29, 2012

This report reviews the security situation of vulnerable populations in Timor-Leste, focusing on women, children, the disabled and the displaced. It identifies and assesses the success of support programs, with particular focus on policing and the Vulnerable Persons Unit. The report argues for greater inclusion of civil society representatives in security decision-making and for further reflection on Timor-Leste’s current approach to policing.
