Remembering terror and activism in the city

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticleResearch

Abstract

In October 2017, Timor-Leste’s National Centre of Memory (Centro Nacional Chega!, CNC) designated sites of historical memory in Dili, the country’s capital, as part of a project titled ‘Dili City of History’ [Sidade Istoriku]. The CNC was formed in 2017 to deal with the legacies of past violence and human rights abuses, mostly committed during Indonesian rule from 1975 to 1999, that were documented by the country’s truth commissions. Many of the sites are former military and police headquarters where the Indonesian security forces detained and tortured East Timorese accused of supporting independence.
