The hosts, Professor S Jayakumar and Professor Tommy Koh, and two guests, Professor Robert Beckman and Dr Hao Duy Phan, spoke about the conciliation between Timor-Leste and Australia under the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). The panellists examined the Decision on Competence of the Conciliation Commission and discussed the implications of the Timor-Leste v. Australia case for the use of future UNCLOS conciliation cases.
