Transnational Issues in Haiti

Disputes – International

Since 2004, about 8,000 peacekeepers from the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) maintain civil order in Haiti. Despite efforts to control illegal migration, Haitians cross into the Dominican Republic and sail to neighbouring countries.

Haiti claims US-administered Navassa Island.

Refugees & Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs)

As of 2012, IDPs number around 171,974 (includes only IDPs from the 2010 earthquake living in camps or camp-like situations; information is lacking about IDPs living outside camps or who have left camps).

Human Trafficking

Haiti is a source, transit and destination country for men, women and children subjected to forced labour and sex trafficking. Many of Haiti's trafficking cases involve children recruited to live with families in other towns in the hope of going to school but who instead become forced domestic servants known as restaveks. Restaveks are vulnerable to abuse and make up a large proportion of Haiti's population of street children, who are forced into prostitution, begging and street crime by violent gangs. Haitians are exploited in forced labour in the Dominican Republic, elsewhere in the Caribbean and the US, and some Dominican women are forced into prostitution in Haiti. Women and children living in camps for internally displaced people are at increased risk of sex trafficking and forced labour.

Illicit Drugs

Haiti is a Caribbean trans-shipment point for cocaine en route to the US and Europe. There's substantial bulk cash smuggling activity and Colombian narcotics traffickers favour Haiti for illicit financial transactions
