East Timor Update #29-37, 1994

Coverage in 1994 notes incremental progress in several areas: a new Canadian aid policy for East Timor, promising moves at the UN, and increasing awareness in Indonesia and in the region (through the Asia Pacific Conference on East Timor). At the same time, the Update devoted more attention to Indonesia, noting its increasing importance to Canadian business, bans on free trade unions. A report of a UN birth control award going to Indonesian President Suharto was incorrect.

Guelph University's Sulawesi Regional Development Project was reviewed by an independent committee that found human rights issues, followed by Indonesia's government killing the project.

Reports of a UN population control award to Suharto were incorrect (correction next issue). Due to a numbering error, there are two issues both dated #37.
