DILI,21 july 2023 (TATOLI) -Timor-Leste National University (TLNU) and the United States for International Development Agency (USAID) announced a project for Tetum translation, publication, and Promotion of the book ‘Women’s Access to Transitional Justice in Timor-Leste: The Blind Letters,’ on friday 21, 2023.

“Women’s Access to Transitional Justice in Timor-Leste: The Blind Letters.” was Aoutored by Dr. Noemi Pérez Vásquez and published in 2022 by Bloomsbury (London).

A statement seen by Tatoli highlights the book’s content which is the panoramic assessment of access to transitional justice from a gender perspective and addresses Timorese women’s participation and recognition in several transitional justice mechanisms, also from a post-colonial theoretical perspective.

Through case studies in Timor-Leste, the book tackles the discriminatory practices embedded in some transitional justice mechanisms, and how they constrain women’s participation and later recognition when post-conflict benefits are distributed.

“USAID is pleased to be involved in this project to foster respect for human rights, especially women’s rights and to advance public understanding of access to transitional justice. Each of these efforts contributes toward a more hospitable environment for the rule of law in Timor-Leste,” said USAID Mission Director, Zema Semunegus which is accessed by TATOLI.

After a careful translation, the book will be published by the end of 2023 under creative commons as an open-source volume, to be made freely available to the public in its printed and e-versions.

The project will focus on broadly disseminating the book through a series of presentations and workshops within academia, as well as in Dili and the municipalities, with the participation of victims and survivors.

The project will promote human and women’s rights, equitable justice, and dealing with the past, as well as encourage public discussions on gender-based human rights violations and abuses that have occurred in the context of the Timorese struggle for independence.

USAID provided funding for the Tetum translation, printing, and distribution of the book “Women’s Access to Transitional Justice in Timor-Leste: The Blind Letters.” The authors’ views expressed in this publication do not necessarily reflect the views of the United States Agency for International Development or the United States Government.
