Friendship agreement represent a new phase in Australian-East Timorese relationships and offer new possibilities in the way we interact with neighbours. This paper forms part of a larger project, funded by the Australian Research Council, exploring processes of peacebuilding and reconstruction in Timor-Leste. It is divided into four sections: in the first the beginnings of and the meaning attached to the friendship agreements are explored. Then the successes and challenges faced by current friendship groups are evaluated from a peacebuilding perspective. Finally, there is a list of recommendations, some of which are from seasoned groups wanting to pass on lessons learned to new groups, and some of which represent key findings from this research.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Development Bulletin, v.68, p. 36-38||Publisher:||Development Studies Network||Place of Publication:||Canberra, Australia||ISSN:||1035-1132||Field of Research (FOR):||160607 International Relations||HERDC Category Description:||C2 Non-Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||https://crawford.anu.edu.au/rmap/devnet/devnet/db-68.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 78
