The long-running dispute over East Timor is an unresolved item on the agenda of the international community. It involves issues of self-determination, nonrecognition, and human rights. This book reproduces the basic materials relating to the historical background of East Timor, to the circumstances of the Indonesian invasion and subsequent incorporation of East Timor, to the development of the dispute in the light of the international community's response to it, and, finally, to the 1995 judgment of the International Court of Justice in the case concerning East Timor between Portugal and Australia.
