UNMIT (Timor-Leste): A story of successful cooperation

The end of the United Nations Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT) on 31 December 2012 brought to a close over 13 years of UN peacekeeping and political missions in the country. Established in response to the internal crisis that shook the country and displaced up to 150,000 people in April and May 2006, UNMIT provided interim law enforcement and public security until Timor-Leste’s national police could be reconstituted and resume its role.
