Country:

Authors:

The assassination of President Jovenel Moise and a 7.2-magnitude earthquake in Haiti this summer have highlighted the political vacuum in this failed state, already beset by postponed elections, a disbanded legislature and rampant gang violence.

Journalists will examine the relationships among business, political and gang leaders ahead of the next presidential elections—which may or may not happen.

Reporters want to examine the role of a weak but determined civil society. Visually and in writing, the team hopes to shed light on the favors and support traded for political ends, and how they play out in daily life.
