Faced with the dramatic and constantly deteriorating situation in Haiti, the current impasse calls for a critical assessment of the international community's current strategy towards Haïti. The purpose of this event, held in French, is to start an open discussion about alternatives for a sustainable solution to the crisis in Haiti.

A panel of experts comprised of Colette Lespinasse, the CoEH representative in Haiti, Frédéric Thomas, researcher at the Centre Tricontinental (CETRI), Jonathan Hatwell, Head of Division for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean at the European External Action Service and a Member of the European Parliament (tbc) will discuss in particular the following questions:

  1. Possible avenues for a sustainable solution to the crisis in Haiti that respects the sovereignty of the Haitian people?
  2. How can this process of finding a sustainable solution to the Haitian crisis be supported from Europe (whether by the European Union, the Member States or civil society)?

The event will take place on Monday, October 9, from 15:30 to 17:00 at Entraide & Fraternité, Rue du Gouvernement Provisoire 32, 1000 Bruxelles.

Before the round table, from 14:30, Ms Colette Lespinasse, CoEH's Haiti correspondent, and Mr Richard Sahinguvu, Broederlijk Delen's representative in Haiti, will give a brief overview of the current situation in Haiti. It is also possible to join this overview or to join the round table directly at 15:30.
