Top Ideas for Conflict, Crime and Violence
In March 2016, Haïti Priorise held its fourth sector expert roundtable to discuss the best solutions to address Haiti’s social conflict, crime and violence challenges. Roundtable participants were asked to identify the strengths and weaknesses of current policy efforts designed to mitigate conflict and propose actions they think should be a priority to address areas of social conflict, crime and violence in Haiti.
The most notable ideas with regard to addressing social conflict focused on: strengthening the capacity of the Office for the Protection of Citizens, extending the OPC’s education program’s coverage nationally, promoting dialogue and citizen’s engagement and making public services and basic infrastructures available to citizens outside of Port-au-Prince.
