Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), a peacekeeping mission created by the UN Security Council in April 2004 to help Haiti’s transitional government in ensuring a secure and stable environment. After providing an overview of the conflict in Haiti between pro-government forces and the opposition, the chapter outlines MINUSTAH’s mandate and evaluates its operational achievements and limitations, particularly in terms of disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration; reform of the Haitian National Police; promotion and protection of human rights; and in organizing and monitoring elections in Haiti. It also considers alternatives to the securitization approach in Haiti.

Keywords: MINUSTAH, peacekeeping mission, UN Security Council, Haiti, demobilization, Haitian National Police, human rights, elections, securitization
