Taur Matan Ruak: the first candidate for the 2012 presidential elections in Timor Leste?

Paulo Gorjão

Along with Ramos-Horta, Mari Alkatiri and Xanana, Matan Ruak is one of the four most popular figures in Timor Leste. Since Alkatiri intends to contest the next parliamentary elections -- also in 2012 -- and settle scores with Xanana, this means that FRETILIN will not have an opponent at his level. However, if Ramos-Horta decides to run for a second presidential term, the CNRT and Xanana will be confronted with an important challenge.

Timor Leste and Woodside: time for take two?

Pedro Seabra

It is not likely that Timor will suddenly back down from its initial claims anytime soon. Especially if we take into consideration that the 2012 elections in Timor Leste are right around the corner and that any meaningful concession could politically damage many of the current intervening actors. But be that as it may, the cautious reactions to the new Woodside leadership by local authorities might indicate a new willingness to sit at the table rather than negotiate through rumors, leaks and outraged declarations to the media, as both sides have frequently done in the past.

Timor Leste's 'David and Goliath' clash with Australia

Vasco Martins

Australia's plans to tackle the growing waves of immigration reaching its shores suffered a massive setback with the rejection by the Timor Leste Parliament of a proposal to set up a refugee processing centre in that country. Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard had hopes this project would be approved and implemented, as Australia appears to have just a handful of options left to solve its immigrant challenges.

All eyes on Timor Leste: juggling regional security sensitivities

Pedro Seabra

How should a small and fragile state cope with active interest in its underlined strategic value for the entire region from several surrounding neighbors? Moreover, how should such a country skillfully handle contradictory defense considerations emanating from a distinctive set of international security suitors without antagonizing any of them? As straightforward as they may seem, these are just some of the questions that today's policymakers must answer in Timor Leste, a country exhibiting more and more signs of a carefully designed security approach, based simultaneously on an equidistance between every major player and occasional tokens of commitment for a selective few.
