From the shocking assassination of their president to a deadly earthquake and the crush of Covid, Haiti has dominated the headlines the past several months. But on this episode of Democracy! The Podcast, find out why the media doesn’t always get the story about Haiti right, and why the news isn’t all bad for the Caribbean’s 2nd largest island.
We’ll hear from a few of the consortium’s partners working on the frontlines of Haiti’s fight for democracy. Plus, two Haitian electoral experts sit down to talk with Adrienne about the future and where their hope lies in seeing their nation transformed.
Plus, Tony Banbury, the President and CEO of the International Foundation for Electoral Systems, shares a life-altering experience which put him at the center of tragedy and transformed his thoughts on Haiti’s future.
Democracy! The Podcast is brought to you by the Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening (CEPPS) with support from the United States Agency for International Development through the Global Elections and Political Transitions Award.
