On November 3 - 4 2005, academics, graduate students, military personnel, practitioners and interested public from Canada and abroad gathered in Waterloo, Ontario to assess the potential for a Canadian 3-D approach in Haiti.
The second international intervention in a decade is underway in Haiti. The challenges are formidable: security continues to be a problem; the economy is in ruins, sustained principally by remittances; high levels of lawlessness and a strong narco-trafficking presence make the emergence of former military and paramilitary figures particularly worrisome; the country's social fabric is seriously strained as is its humanitarian and development infrastructure.
