Justin Podur unmasks the grim reality of a supposedly benign international occupation, arguing that the denial of sovereignty is the fundamental cause of Haitis problems. A powerful challenge and wake-up call to the international NGO and development community, Haitis New Dictatorship is essential reading for anyone concerned with justice in the global south and progressive development policies.
