U.S.-Haiti Relations: An Analysis of U.S. Immigration and Foreign Policy in Haiti (Apr. 19, 2022)

The HKS Black Student Union and Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs are co-hosting a series of conversations on Haiti. With the discourse around Title 42 alive and well in our politics today, we seek to explore the ways in which U.S. foreign policy and immigration policy are implemented with great disparity around the world. As a follow-on to the conversation last semester, we will focus on Haiti, exploring the evolving ways the U.S. engages with Haiti and Haitians, both on the island and here on U.S. soil.

Jacqueline Bhabha, JD, MsC, Professor of the Practice of Health and Human Rights at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, will moderate a discussion between Robert Fatton Jr., the Ambassador Henry J. Taylor and Mrs. Marion R. Taylor Professor of Politics at the University of Virginia, and Jacqueline Charles, a Pulitzer Prize finalist and Emmy Award-winning foreign correspondent for the Miami Herald.
