Haiti in Crisis: What Role Can the International Community Play?

September 13, 2021 • 2:00 – 3:00 pm EDT

Please join the CSIS Americas Program for a livestream discussion on the recent political crises and natural disasters in Haiti, and on the path forward for recovery.

A series of recent events, including the brutal assassination of President Moïse on July 7, a massive earthquake on August 14, and the arrival of Tropical Storm Grace – all in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic – have exacerbated Haiti’s state of political and social chaos.

This event seeks to address how the international community, and in particular the United States, can collaborate in partnership with the Haitian government and civil society actors on the ground. Panelists will provide specific recommendations for the international community that will ultimately contribute to improved security, stability and resilience in the long-term, while prioritizing medical, food security, and logistical assistance in the short-term.

This event was made possible through general funding to CSIS.
