East Timor and the United Nations: The Case for Intervention

Coperta unu
The Red Sea Press, 1997 - 241 pagini
In the forceful tradition of Nobel laureate Jose Ramos-Horta's FUNU (Red Sea Press 1987), the present worl advocates self-determination for and the urgent need for UN intervention in the former Portuguese colony of East Timor. Since 1975, when neighboring Indonesia invaded and occupied this small Southeast Asian half-island, an amazingly creative and dedicated international community of activists has arisen over this question. Now, the Nobel Committee's award of the 1996 Peace Prize to Mr. Ramos-Horta and his compatriot, Bishop Carlos Ximenes Belo, is drawing worldwide attention to this ongoing tragedy. In addition to the author's own analysis of the situation, this book features a selection of relevant UN documents and other primary sources relating to East Timor, including: the key General Assembly and Security Council resolutions of 1975-1982; the damning reports of UN special Rapporteurs; the hyper-proceduralist utterances of the Foreign Ministers' meetings; and the World Court "no-case" judgement on the Australian deal with Indonesia over East Timor's oil reserves. This, the most comprehensive collection of official documentation of East Timor published to date, bears eloquent testimony to the silent agony of the East Timorese people over two decades.
