The long-running dispute over East Timor is an unresolved item on the agenda of the international community. It involves issues of self-determination, non-recognition, and human rights. This book reproduces the basic materials relating to the historical background; 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. The volume contains a substantial introduction which places the documents in context and provides an overview of the political and legal issues of the dispute.
