Haiti: Human rights defenders' lives in danger

Human rights defenders David Boniface and Juders Ysemé fear for their lives following the sudden death of their colleague, Nissage Martyr, one day after service of a lawsuit filed by the three men in the US for grave human rights violations against Jean Morose Viliena, the former mayor of their hometown in Haiti. The men have reported repeated death threats and attacks from the former mayor since 2007, and must be provided adequate protection.

Following political crisis Haiti must urgently advance human rights agenda

Haiti’s acceptance of recommendations to ratify the UN Convention on the Status of Stateless Persons and the Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness is significant in a situation where tens of thousands of people of Haitian descent born in the neighbouring Dominican Republic have been rendered stateless. Amnesty International urges the Haitian government to work closely with the Dominican government to restore Dominican nationality to those arbitrarily deprived of it in 2013.

This submission was prepared for the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Haiti in November 2016. In it, Amnesty International evaluates the implementation of recommendations made in its UPR in 2011, noting that while Haiti has taken some steps to address concerns raised in the previous review, more needs to be done to fully implement the recommendations and to address key human rights concerns in the country.

Haiti: “Where are we going to live?” Migration and statelessness in Haiti and the Dominican Republic

Dominican and the Haitian authorities, as well as international organizations and donors, need to respect the commitments they initially made and the obligations they have under international human rights law in order to ensure that Haitian migrants and Dominicans of Haitian descent are not arbitrarily deported or expelled and that their human rights are respected, protected and fulfilled.

Haiti: '15 minutes to leave': Denial of the right to adequate housing in post-quake Haiti

Five years after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, durable housing solutions remain out of reach for hundreds of thousands of displaced people. Although forced evictions from displacement camps decreased in 2014, forced evictions in the context of reconstruction and infrastructure development projects, for which the Haitian authorities are directly responsible, are increasing. This report calls on the Haitian authorities and on the international community to take much more decisive action to make the right to adequate housing a reality for all in Haiti.

Americas: Defending human rights in the Americas: necessary, legitimate and dangerous

Defending human rights in Latin America and the Caribbean continues to be a dangerous activity. Despite the fact that it is a human right recognized by international instruments, defending human rights has cost lives, physical integrity and freedom of hundreds of human rights defenders in the region. In the past few years, Amnesty International has documented killings, abductions, death threats, intimidation and an increased use of the legal system to intimidate and repress the defence of human rights throughout the region.
