Consolidation of Research Centres on Reconstruction in Haiti

Haiti continues to face serious challenges in the area of state building and democratization. A group of Latin American countries have assumed an active role within the peacekeeping forces coordinated by the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH). Their effectiveness in this role depends on their ability to access and process evidence on the impact of their military and civil cooperation efforts. With collaboration from IDRC, research institutions in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico have begun studying Haiti's social, economic and political problems, and how to address them. This project will support these efforts by promoting the implementation of more and better studies, improving the training of young researchers, encouraging exchange and collaboration between research institutions, and facilitating debate in Latin America and the Caribbean on state-building in Haiti.
