Should donor countries cancel Haiti’s foreign debt? How effective has the U.N. been in managing the crisis? Should the U.S. take the lead in Haiti’s reconstruction? How will Chavez respond to an increased American regional presence? Will the disaster shift regional geopolitics?
We will discuss these questions, and more, on February 23rd with
Bob Maguire, Director of the Haiti Program at Trinity Washington University in D.C., where he is a professor of International Affairs, and Chair of the U.S. Institute of Peace's Haiti Working Group,
and Nikolas Kozloff, author of “Hugo Chavez, Oil, Politics, and the Challenge to the U.S.”
The conversation will be moderated by François Pierre-Louis Associate Professor at CUNY, specialized in Caribbean and Haitian Politics.
Lenelle Moise, a Haitian-American poet and performance artist, will recite a few of her poems to open the program.
