Signs of Progress, Signs of Remission towards Haiti’s Future
Well, well, well…. It’s been said that the impacts of the new elected administration of René Préval in Haiti, is starting to bear some fruits.
Of course, this is not an easy task in a country that has been mired with systemic governance challenges, and constant insecurity (see here).

But as Haiti gradually moves into a process of reconstruction, it is more than ever important for the international and regional bodies/stakeholders to be reminded that the path to prosperity, and achievements in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) draws a strong connection between peace and development.
Within this spectrum, the prospects for consensus-building should revel themselves through a well established two-way relationship where security and development are the pinnacles to define any level of involvement in international and regional cooperation.
By going the opposite direction would be a foolish attempt to further nurture the paths of conflict for the country.
The long and shaky history of Haiti has taught us some valuable lessons to know by now that socio-political upheavals can drain to the maximum a country’s capacity to attain and sustain reasonable economic growth and investments.

And as a matter of fact, the prerogatives now are to map out a cohesive operational framework to rally and deploy, compensatory investments to strengthen the state infrastructures, and moreover clear the ways for a sound judicial and security system.
Rights-Based Approaches (RBAs) should be the quorum to further enlarge the process of cooperation for Haiti.
