Democratization Process, Violence, and Peacebuilding in Contemporary Haiti

This project focuses on violence and human insecurity in post-dictatorship and post-disaster Haiti. It builds on a series of transdisciplinary multistage ethnographic and sociological studies conducted in Haiti over the course of 25 years to generate an analysis that interrogates the standard categorization of and community responses to violence. The project is premised on the continuity of violence and its patterns through time and the connectivity between varied layers of micro- and macroviolence. It highlights the unique value of ethnography as a distinctive means to investigate the principles at work in the production and reproduction of violence in sociocultural contexts like Haiti.
