A conversation with Geoffrey Robinson who was a key member of the United Nations mission in East Timor at the time of the referendum on independence. His new book provides valuable insights into the thinking within the UN and the international community at the time, as well as being a vivid personal account of what he witnessed in East Timor. Robinson also addresses the enduring question of how best to seek justice for the crimes of the past.
Geoffrey Robinson Associate professor of history at the University of California, Los Angeles; former political affairs officer with the United Nations mission in East Timor (UNAMET).
