Between the Portuguese Carnation Revolution of 25 April 1974 and the world-acclaimed proclamation of the “restauration” of its independence on May 20, 2002, Timor-Leste travelled a very long, dramatic and bumpy road. The exercise of the right to selfdetermination according to the principles enshrined in the UN main documents was only achieved after a lengthy process that mobilized the East Timorese themselves, but also implied the participation of many other actors across the globe – national governments, international agencies, NGOs and the world public opinion in general – in contexts that
moved from the height of the Cold War to the demise of the bipolar world. This panel welcomes participants interested in discussing all aspects of this process, with a special focus on transnational aspects of the long liberation struggle of the people of Timor-Leste
