International Seminar on the theme, “Building Peace beyond the Land Border”

Border areas can become vulnerable for conflicts. This might also happens to the border between Timor Leste and Indonesia. With the deployment of a huge numbers of military personnel to the border there maybe an increase in political tension.

This subject became an interesting topic of discussion in the international seminar on the theme, “Building Peace beyond the Land Border” which was held at the National Development University Hall (UPN Veteran), Yogyakarta, Indonesia, the Department of International Relation, on Friday, June 6, 2011.

The speakers in this seminar included Frei dos Martires da Costa, researcher of Defense and Security from Fundasaun Mahein (FM), Deonisio Babo, former President of Commission of Truth and Friendship (CTF), Fauzan, author of books and lecturer of International Relations, and the Deputy Assistant of International Border Management, Dr. Sumarsono.

Participants at the seminar included students from Timor Leste and Indonesia. This seminar was organized by a joint group from National Development University if Veterans (UPN-Veteran), Yogjakarta – the Defense and Security Laboratory Study and the Timor Leste Students’ Association.

“Many issues happen in border conflicts. For instance, intimidation against people living near the border,” said Frei Guterres in this seminar. He also questioned about the intimidation, which usually comes from military element along the border and which has nevr been subject to a legal process.

The issue about conflicts along the border is not new, and he has informed the government about this but so far no adequate solution has come from the government in relation to these conflicts. According to this FM researcher, a cultural approach must be used in these cases, not violence. Because a violent system might be increase the existing conflicts. For Frei, through a cultural approach, the people around the area can minimize the amount of conflict along the border.

Other speaker is Deputy Assistant for International Border Management, Dr. Sumarsono. He said that conflicts along the border of Timor Leste and Indonesia are caused by the social tendencies between people of Indonesia and Timor Leste. In addition, the unclear administrative situation becomes a cause of conflicts along the border.

In this occasion, the FM researcher questioned again the deployment of military along the border in large numbers. For Timor Leste, Indonesia is neighboring country and has a land border with Timor Leste but the military deployment might create a perception that Timor Leste is a threat for Indonesia.

To accomplish human security objectives along the border between Indonesia and Timor Leste, Fundasaun Mahein (FM) recommends both governments (Indonesia and Timor Leste) establish a cultural approach policy since people along the border have had strong cultural connections for a long time.

FM also recommends governments of Timor Leste and Indonesia to not adopt different positions on human security issues along the border but that they need to think together through bilateral processes in order to achieve a good external policy, full of peace, and provide prosperity for the people of Timor Leste and Indonesia.
