Haïti & Humanitarianism (Research Presentation)



On June 7, 2016, Dr. Audra A. Diptee presented her preliminary reflections on the humanitarian sector in Haïti at the 41st Annual Caribbean Studies Association Conference which was held at Port-au-Prince. Her presentation was entitled ‘L’enfance et les discours humanitaires: Haïti.’ In this project Diptee explores the ways in which infantilising discourses in the humanitarian sector have served to reinforce unbalanced power relations, privileged certain forms of knowledge, and have ultimately hindered humanitarian initiatives in Haïti.
