Torture, Truth and Justice: The Case of Timor Leste (Politics in Asia) By Elizabe Stanley
Publisher: Routledge 2008-12 | 208 Pages | ISBN: 0415478073 | PDF | 1.2 MB

This book highlights how, and why, torture is such a compelling tool for states and other powerful actors. While torture has a short-term use value for perpetrators, it also creates a devastating legacy for victims, their families and communities. In exposing such repercussions, this book addresses the questions 'What might torture victims need to move forward from their violation?' and 'How can official responses provide truth or justice for torture victims?' Building on observations, documentary analysis and over seventy interviews with both torture victims and transitional justice workers this book explores how torture was used, suffered and resisted in Timor-Leste.The author investigates the extent to which transitional justice institutions have provided justice for torture victims; illustrating how truth commissions and international courts operate together and reflecting on their successes and weaknesses with reference to wider social, political and economic conditions. Stanley also details victims' experiences of torture and highlights how they experience life in the newly built state of Timor-Leste. Tracking the past, present and future of human rights, truth and justice for victims in Timor-Leste, "Torture, Truth and Justice" will be of interest to students, professionals and scholars of Asian studies, International Studies, Human Rights and Social Policy.
