Reforming Security in Timor-Leste: Can a Plural Justice System Work? | In Asia

conflict-affected or post-conflict societies like Timor-Leste, day-to-day security is often not provided by the state via a formal justice mechanism, but rather, through informal, community-level actors with varying relationships to the state (described as plural security).
