Abstract:

The stability operation in East Timor from September 20, 1999 to February 23, 2000, demonstrated how the United States can support the leadership of a well-respected and capable regional partner to strengthen the legitimacy of international efforts and encourage burden sharing at a time of competing Joint Force demands.1 The East Timor action, known as Operation STABILISE, was a United Nations U.N. sanctioned, Australian-led, multinational peace enforcement operation.2 Its objective was to end the violence in East Timor, establish security, and set conditions for the transition to a U.N. peacekeeping force in what was then a province of Indonesia
