The Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies are proud to present a hybrid panel discussion titled "Haiti's Overlapping Crises: Is There A Way Through?" This event, which will be held both in person and online, will feature three experts who will reflect on the current situation in Haiti and offer ideas for a way forward. Dr. Jacqueline Gautier, Advisor and Coordinator for Development and Fundraising for NPH Haiti’s St. Damien Pediatric Hospital will discuss both the significant humanitarian need and humanitarian access challenges currently affecting the country. We will also have a historian Yveline Alexis, Professor of Africana Studies and Comparative American Studies at Oberlin College, from Oberlin College who will talk about the historical roots of the current overlapping crises in Haiti, and Sabine Lamour, Professor of Sociology and Gender at the State University of Haiti, who will focus specifically on the impact that current crises have had on women and girls in Haiti.
