CAVR Timor-Leste Data Publication





These files contain the data used in the calculations made and presented in Benetech-HRDAG's Report to the Commission for Reception, Truth and Reconciliation (CAVR). This extends the analysis published in the CAVR's 2,500-page final report "Chega!" (Portuguese for 'no more, that's enough'), as its "Profile of Violations in Timor-Leste, 1974 to 1999" chapter and "Annexe on Data and Statistical Methods."

  In accordance with Benetech-HRDAG's Memorandum of Understanding with the CAVR, these data are published on the Internet so that others can use the material to replicate our findings and continue research on past human rights violations in Timor-Leste. In order to protect the privacy of the people who suffered, the information in the files below contains only data on fatal violations, and there is no personal identifying information about the victims or witnesses of the violations. In particular, the names (firstnames, lastnames and nicknames) of individual victims are not published. Also, geographic location information and date information are published in aggregated forms: locations are published only at the district level, and dates are given only with the year and month.
