When Timor-Leste became independent from Indonesia in 2002 the country had high expectations for the benefits of self-rule. The gap between these hopes and the reality of Timor-Leste at independence is huge. The country is ranked amongst the least developed countries in the world, suffers widespread food insecurity and an extraordinary population growth rate. The new nation has found itself at the centre of international attention in the last decade, with one of the biggest interventions in UN history, as well as amongst the highest per capita rates of bilateral assistance in the Asia-Pacific region. While the enormous international engagement has many positive aspects, it brings commensurate challenges of coordination, integration and competition, as well as an arguably limited history of success.
This volume draws together the perspectives of practitioners, policy-makers and academics on the international efforts to rebuild the worlda (TM)s newest nation. The contributors consider issues of peace-building, security and justice sector reform as well as human security in Timor-Leste, locating these in the broader context of building nation, stability and development. Engaging in deliberate consideration of both practical and theoretical complexities of international interventions, this book will be of interest to academics and students in the fields of Development, Security and Southeast Asian Studies.

This booklet is intended to help anyone in search of a clear sense of "self" mark the pathway to a place of safety, peace, joy and love.

Do you forget about your own needs and wants in your primary relationships? Do you have trouble setting and holding boundaries? Do you determine your "okayness" by how other people in your life feel? If any of these are true for you, read this booklet.
