<p>The fight against domestic violence in East Timor involves a growing set of projects from the government, international aid and local organizations. This paper analyses the impact of these activities on local meanings of violence, trying to clarify some of the dilemmas of modernization in East Timor which may be seen in the conflicts between different senses of violence, body and gender. The contradictions of the process of prevention and education against domestic violence tell us about both private conflicts embodied in particular relations, and the current changes in Timorese society on a more general level, putting together different meanings of law, justice and the individual. </p> <p>Portuguese<br />O combate à violência doméstica em Timor-Leste tem envolvido cada vez mais iniciativas do Estado, da cooperação internacional e de organizações da sociedade civil daquele país. Este artigo analisa o impacto destas iniciativas sobre representações locais da violência, buscando identificar alguns dilemas da modernização timorense expressos nos conflitos entre diferentes sentidos de violência, de corporalidade e de gênero. Ao mesmo tempo em que falam de conflitos privados, encarnados em corpos e relações particulares, as contradições do processo de combate à violência doméstica falam de mudanças em curso na sociedade timorense em nível mais geral, articulando diferentes noções de direito, justiça e indivíduo. </p> <p>French<br />La lutte contre la violence domestique à Timor-Leste a chaque fois plus été l'objet d'initiatives du gouvernement, de la coopération internationale et des organisations locales de la société civile. Ce texte analyse leur impact sur les représentations locales de la violence, en mettant en évidence quelques dilemmes de la modernisation du pays, manifestes dans les conflits entre différentes significations de la violence, du corps et du genre. En même temps que l'on parle de conflits privés, incarnés dans les corps et les relations entre particuliers, les contradictions du processus de lutte contre la violence domestique parlent, elles, de changements en cours dans la société timoraise en général, dans les notions du droit, de la justice et de l'individu. </p>
