The National Strategic Development Plan (PEDN) 2011-2030 defines that the purpose of Timor-Leste’s development is to strengthen security and stability, establish institutions of the democratic state, recognizing that sustaining peace is the fundamental priority in order to realize the development and promotion of well-being for the Timorese people. These strategic guidelines reflect the challenges and threats of the contemporary environment, and based on this establish the missions of the Defence and Security forces, inclusive of their contributions to internal security and support for State foreign policy.
This report focuses on policy development challenges for the security sector and foreign affairs. Unlike legislation, which stipulates what can and cannot be done legally, policy is a deliberate plan of actions to guide decisions and achieve desired outcomes.
Within this context this report provides three recommendations for the VIII Constitutional Government towards supporting policy development for National Security, Defence and Foreign Affairs. These recommendations are made cognisant of the need to align this policy development with the Strategic Concept for Defence and National Security, passed in 2016.
