Description

Two and a half years after the devastating  earthquake  of 12 January 2010, Haiti is still facing a profound humanitarian crisis. Hundreds of thousands of victims of the earthquake are surviving with no meaningful shelter.  Relatively little housing has been built.  A cholera epidemic introduced by UN soldiers in 2010 has stricken more than half a million and killed more than 7,000. The controversial UN military/police mission has no end in sight.  Respect of human rights and rule of law is fragile.  Economic reconstruction is mired in conflicting visions for the future of the country and its poor majority.

This seminar has been arranged in association with:

  • Canada Haiti Action Network;
  • Haiti Support Group (UK);
  • Human Rights Consortium; 
  • Institute for the Study of the Americas.
