Haiti has seen seven UN missions to date since the early 1990s. Its problems have arisen from bad or ineffectual governance, weak institutions, and insecurity. The ever-expanding list of needs that Haiti’s elected government requires for survival, especially after the 2010 earthquake, makes it difficult to establish a clear end state for international engagement. While individual donor countries can find a way to exit, they do so by devolving authority to the UN as the means to maintain or create a lifeline to some of the most vexing political conflicts of our time. It would be unrealistic to imagine a twenty-year UN mission in Haiti, but it is clear that there will be a UN presence, even if the size is reduced, for the next several years.
