A lesson on UN peacekeeping—from Haiti

Adapted from an article published in The Christian Science Monitor, February 15, 2017.

United Nations peacekeeping forces in Haiti are on track to be withdrawn soon, a result of progress in reducing violence on the Caribbean island.

“Security is not perfect, but I think it is much better,” said head of UN peacekeeping Hervé Ladsous. One sign of progress: A more professional police force was able to help keep a relative peace during an election in November that brought a new president, Jovenel Moïse, to power.
