Coming just a few days after the last of the dignitaries departed Dili, the launch of The Asia Foundation’s (TAF) Community-Police Perceptions Survey (CPP Survey) on 3 September helps to shed more light on the dark corners of these complex security challenges. The CPP Survey represents the fifth survey of its kind in Timor-Leste, with TAF conducting its first nationwide survey on security perceptions in Timor-Leste in 2008. The Surveys were repeated in 2009, 2013, 2015, and 2018.
