The Haiti Information Project (HIP) provides news, analysis, information and background concerning politics and human rights in Haiti.
HIP was founded in 2003 as a response to the lack of media coverage of human rights violations in the build up to the coup that forced President Jean-Bertrand Aristide into exile in 2004. Since then, it has blossomed into a collaboration between journalists and reliable sources concerned with providing information and background of events currently unfolding in Haiti.
HIP also compiles, catalogs and maintains one of the most comprehensive digital archives of social media artifacts related to news and events shared by Haitians about Haiti. The goal is to make this archive available to researchers and educators offering essential background and context to historical events and figures continuing to shape the current political landscape and the contemporary debate of issues facing Haiti.
In the future, this site will also provide a complete archive of HIP articles written during the period of 2004-2006 including background information and photographic evidence that has never been published. It will also include specific evidence of human rights abuses committed during this period by the Police Nationale d’Haiti (PNH) and the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH).
The Haiti Info Project is not associated with the Canada-Haiti Information Project.
