Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on the United Nations Civilian Police Mission in Haiti (MIPONUH), a peacekeeping mission launched by the UN Security Council in December 1997 to support democratization in Haiti. It was the fourth UN mission in Haiti, and its mandate entailed technical assistance and training to the Haitian National Police (HNP). Unlike the first three missions, MIPONUH had no military element, relying instead on international civil police. It remained in Haiti until mid-March 2000. This chapter outlines the achievements and limitations of MIPONUH, as well as the lessons that can be learned from its experience.
