What is DGSU:

 


 

The mandate for the Democratic Governance Support Unit (DGSU) emanates from the goals of the Security Council resolution 1704, which call for “enhancing a culture of democratic governance and facilitating political dialogue among Timorese stakeholders.” DGSU, functions in an integrated UN mission, helps to serve these goals by monitoring Governmental and civic activities, analyzing sources of information, and providing recommendations concerning the progress and or concerns in democratic governance in Timor-Leste. Further, DGSU facilitates the exchange of information among all groups, including the Timorese Government, international donors, and UN agencies.

In carrying out its tasks, the DGSU provides oversight functions of the four Constitutional organs: Executive, Parliament, Government and Judiciary to assess whether checks and balance system functions fairly. Also, the DGSU focuses on other administrative initiatives, such civil service reform and anti-corruption with the goal of promoting accountability and transparency and good governance. The DGSU holds regular meetings with NGO’s and media organizations which provide an important role in building a civil society. In addition, the Unit visits the districts to assess development in decentralization and power sharing. Of course, the DGSU electoral team continues with providing legal advice, civic education, training, logistical and IT support to the STAE and CNE. Finally, DGSU in collaboration with the Timorese Government develops and organizes workshops on democratic governance,

Although the DGSU monitors closely governmental activities, it is not actually serving within the Timorese government. Although it supports capacity building, in terms of workshops, training and giving recommendations, it is able to maintain an impartial position.
