This is a semi-official blog of the Office of the Presidency, run by the Department of Research, Analysis and Documentation. Through this medium, we, the staff of the Presidency at Aitaraklaran will share our views and opinions about public issues that we pick up to be discussed, publish research articles that we have produced on public policy issues, and provide response to the issues that are publicly discussed. We also welcome contribution from other colleagues who have their critical view on the public issues in Timor-Leste. The aim of the blog is to create a platform to share, make aware, discuss and find a common ground (or not). Comments and suggestions are welcome.
