Babo-Soares, Dionisio (2004). Nahe Biti: The Philosophy and Process of Grassroots Reconciliation (and Justice) in East Timor. The Asia Pacific Journal of Anthropology. 5(1, April): 15-33.

UNTAET and the East Timorese have pursued formal reconciliation processes as part of the nation-building effort in newly independent East Timor. These formal reconciliation processes aim for closure and operate in the realm of national politics. In the meantime local communities have been dealing with the issues of reintegrating refugees and rebuilding social relationships through an inventive adaptation of traditional practices of reconciliation. In contrast to the formal elite-level strategies, the grassroots strategies are more concerned with process than formal outcomes. Author's abstract.
