The United Nations Transitional Administration in East Timor (UNTAET) which had effectively 'ruled' that territory for two and a half years handed over the country's administration to the government of the newly-independent Democratic Republic of East Timor on May 20, 2002. Praised as one of the most comprehensive and successful nation building operations of the United Nations, UNTAET had the challenging task of facilitating the creation of a new country from virtually non-existent institutional foundations, following a traumatic period of violence and civil war. A group of eminent scholars and practitioners, many deeply and personally involved with UNTAET, came together in a closed-door gathering in Tokyo in September 2002, to review the achievements and shortcomings of UNTAET, and to understand the lessons of hope that it may carry for other nations emerging from war and destruction. The conference reflected on the intense debates held at the United Nations Security Council in New York and at key capitals around the world leading to the creation of UNTAET. It also dealt with the manner in which the mission unfolded, operated, and the level of reconstruction achieved when East Timor was handed over to its people. This volume forms a lively and indispensable reading to experts or laypersons interested in current affairs in general and in post-war nation building in particular.

Review:

"On notera, parmi d'autres, l'intervention du regretti Sergio Vieira de Mello, alors Reprisentant Spicial du Secritaire Giniral pour l'ATNUTO, qui fournit un point de vue unique sur les legons retenir de l'ATNUTO, tout la fois grave et plein d'humour. C'est certainement une des originalitis de cet ouvrage que de permettre au chercheur de lire les acteurs directement impliquis dans ces opirations se dipartir des pricautions verbales et des formules d'usage auxquelles leur position oblige souvent recourir.
En plus de fournir au chercheur travaillant sur le maintien de la paix une mine d'informations qu'il serait autrement difficile de dinicher, cet ouvrage ouvre aussi une fenjtre sur le fonctionnement de l'ONU dans ses difficultis quotidiennes, loin des salles de presse de l'East Side, avec une remarquable sinciriti.
Matthieu Monin in "Actualiti et Droit International (www.ridi.org/adi)
