On August 16th, HAWG and HRC members convened for a conversation about different frameworks and perspectives on peacebuilding in Haiti. Approaches from the international community and within Haiti can often see the same problem from different lenses. This frequently creates dissonance in approaches, objectives and outcomes. How does this moment demand that we learn better from each other, and ensure that an appropriate Haitian-led approach is central, rather than impose inefficient, ineffective and potentially harmful solutions from outside of Haiti?  Leading the conversation are Daniel Tillias and Jessica Hsu.

Daniel and Jessica began by talking about their experiences and ongoing conversations around peacebuilding from Cite Soleil to other similar communities. This was an informal, private conversation that we hope grows into more action.
