Wednesday 28th July, 2021

Timor-Leste, Malaysia and Australia co-chaired the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) Workshop on Dispute Resolution and the Law of the Sea. The Workshop was held in Dili at the Ministry of Finance. The Maritime Boundary Office participated in the organising committee and worked closely with Timor-Leste’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation as well as with the other two co-chairs in putting this workshop together.

The Workshop drew participants with academic and practitioner experience in the Law of the Sea providing both a regional and international perspective. The forum examined a range of past cases with a focus on the conciliation between Timor-Leste and Australia as a recent case of success of a dispute resolution.
