Abstract: Community-Based Tourism (CBT) has been developed in parts of rural Timor-Leste and offers a potential basis for developing sustainable forms of tourism. Timor-Leste is an oil dependent fledgling island nation and the prospects for CBT are confronted by a number of challenges. Using a multi-stage qualitative research approach, the present paper explores stakeholder perceptions of a potential CBT network within Timor. The research participants were in broad agreement that CBT offers considerable potential for developing sustainable tourism and that a prospective CBT network could help to overcome challenges such as lack of knowledge, funding and marketing. The paper evaluates the views expressed by research participants on a potential development process for the network structure. The potential CBT model is explored from the perspectives of neo-liberalism, neo-colonialism, social economy and community development.
