In the past year Haiti has lived through the assassination of a president, multiple natural disasters and an exodus of people. Now, a simmering political crisis has put pressure on the country’s leadership and raised questions about how it will chart a path toward new elections. What role should the international community play in helping Haiti find a way forward? What are the limitations of U.S. involvement? Monique Clesca, a journalist and member of the Commission to Search for a Haitian Solution to the Crisis, joins the AQ podcast to provide an overview of where the country stands today.
Monique Clesca is a journalist based in Port-au-Prince, a former UN official and a member of the Commission to Search for a Haitian Solution to the Crisis.
