This paper offers an appraisal of the Theory of Change developed by The Asia Foundation for its programming on Community Security, with particular reference to support for community policing. The analytical focus is on the formulation and use of the Theory of Change, the evidence provided for a specific claim within it, and its contribution to the change the Foundation hoped for at both community and national level. The research is based on fieldwork conducted in Timor-Leste from February to May 2013, as well as desk research and a literature review. The Executive Summary outlines key findings and offers suggestions for further research.
