Implications for Haiti with the Departure of UN Peacekeeping Mission (MINUSTAH)
Please join for a public discussion of the implications for Haiti's security, political and economic future following the announced departure in October of the UN Peacekeeping Mission (MINUSTAH) military force. Speakers will examine MINUSTAH’s controversial history, its response in the aftermath of multiple natural disasters, and how the international community and a follow-on UN presence can help Haitian institutions cope with inevitable security and stability threats.
The discussion will be led by a panel of experts, including Acting Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State and former Ambassador to Haiti Kenneth Merten; former UN Special Representative of the Secretary General (SRSG) and Chilean Ambassador to the U.S. Juan Gabriel Valdés. CSIS Senior Advisor and former Assistant Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development for Latin America and the Caribbean, Mark L. Schneider, will moderate. Other panelists to be added soon.
