Implications of the International Relief Effort for Haitian Parliamentarians

This week the Inter-Parliamentary Forum of the Americas published an article of mine reflecting on the implications of the globalization and privatization of Haitian reconstruction in their newsletter ParlAmericas. Click here to read it (see page 2).

In the article I say that the globalization of social service provision in Haiti has in some ways eroded the power of Haitian parliamentarians. Yet it also offers them new opportunities to link up with international actors to advance their social agendas.

This article was based on my earlier report on the governance of the Haitian relief effort, written for the London School of Economics, available here.
