Haiti is attracting renewed attention by the world’s media, as concerns mount over its converging governance, economic and security crises. How did Haiti get to this point, almost ten years after a catastrophic earthquake in January 2010? Who are the key players and what are their agendas? What scenarios can we envisage over the coming year? Where does Canada fit in that panorama?

Before moving to uO in 2008, he was a policy researcher and practitioner with non-governmental and governmental agencies in Ottawa, London and Guatemala.
