(p.118) 7 Haiti
Exit Strategies and State Building

Johanna Mendelson Forman

Oxford University Press

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.
