Biden Administration’s Dangerous Haitian Expulsion Strategy Escalates the U.S. History of Illegal and Discriminatory Mistreatment of Haitians Seeking Safety in the United States

September 21, 2021

This fact sheet from Human Rights First and Haitian Bridge Alliance (the Bridge) examines the response of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Biden Administration toward the predominantly Haitian migrants and asylum-seekers who crossed into the United States near Del Rio, Texas in August/September 2021. It also compares the current situation to the approach the United States has historically adopted toward Haitian immigrants and asylum seekers.

La Révolution haïtienne de 1804, entre Marxisme et Décolonialité

January 2, 2021

Cet article discute en marge de l'ouvrage de Jean Casimir, Une lecture décoloniale de l'histoire des Haïtiens, les conditions d'une analyse marxiste de la Révolution haïtienne de 1804. Il interroge le « rejet » par les études décoloniales des pensées marxistes pour repenser cet événement radical. Nous postulons une « rencontre épistémique » entre les marxismes et les études décoloniales afin de cerner les enjeux capital-travail de cette Révolution et aussi ses antécédents coloniaux déployés comme la face cachée de la Modernité. Nous tenons à expliquer l'absence de références marxistes, notamment des Jacobins Noirs de CLR James, dans l'excellent ouvrage de Casimir qui propose d'inverser les méthodes d'intelligibilité de cette Révolution. Que pourrait rapporter à Casimir les travaux de CLR James, d'Etienne Charlier et de Michel Hector dans son étude novatrice sur la Révolution haïtienne de 1804?

Sustainability Assessment of Rural Water Service Delivery Models : Findings of a Multi-Country Review

August 25, 2017

With 2.1 billion people – mostly in rural areas – lacking safely managed drinking water and reported low rural water supply functionality rates, the Sustainable Development Goals pose a triple challenge: to reach unserved mostly rural population groups, to raise service levels, and to sustain existing and future services. This assessment uses a multi-country case study approach to identify good practices and challenges toward building sector capacity and strengthening sustainable service delivery models for rural areas. Recognizing the limitations of the Demand Responsive Approach, the emergence of various management models, the identified need for ongoing support to rural service providers, and the critical role of enabling institutions and policies beyond the community-level, the added value of this assessment lies in: i) the development of a comprehensive analytical framework that can be used to analyze and operationalize a more sustainable service delivery approach for rural water supply; ii) the rich set of cases and good practices from the 16 countries informing the global body of "knowledge in implementation," and iii) the formulation of recommendations and policy directions to improve the sustainability of services depending on sector development stage. Policy recommendations are centered around five areas: institutional capacity, financing, asset management, water resources management, and monitoring and regulatory oversight.
