Welcome and Diak ka lae!

The Timor-Leste Studies Association was established in June 2005 (following the "Cooperating with Timor-Leste" Conference at Victoria University) to connect researchers with information, other researchers and research on Timor-Leste.

If you have a thirst to know more about Timor-Leste this website can link you to people and websites which may be useful if you are planning your first or your 50th field trip to Timor.

The Timor-Leste Studies Association is now affiliated with the
Asian Studies Association of Australia.
