Chapter Summary

This chapter suggests that Timor Leste's Reception, Truth and Reconciliation Commission (CAVR) provided a significant forum for uncovering or remembering many of the human rights atrocities which occurred during the 1974-99 period. An underlying theme of many of the lessons is the need to involve victims and survivors in discussions about what transitional justice strategies, including questions of truth, reconciliation and justice, should look like, and the importance of developing integrated approaches to such processes. Eric Stover and Harvey Weinstein, for instance, speak of more integrated approaches to 'social reconstruction', positing an 'ecological model' of social reconstruction including programs that promote justice, democracy, economic prosperity and transformation and reconciliation.

Keywords: CAVR; community reconciliation process; integrated transitional justice strategies; survivor-centred approach; Timor Leste; truth seeking operation
