Haiti - Social : What are excepting the young Haitians from democracy ?
What are excepting the young Haitians from democracy, in social, economic, political and legal terms ? These are all important questions asked of a sample of young people aged 15 to 24, who represent more than half of Haiti’s population.

Launched in September 2020 and completed in June 2021, the advocacy for democracy project was built on the reflections and expectations of young people interviewed by twenty volunteers from the Center Muse Haiti, throughout the months in the field.

The young people involved in this advocacy had very varied profiles : students, artisans, sex workers, young people from the Haitian diaspora, young people with disabilities, young people with different sexual orientation, young people in conflict with the law, young inhabitants of disadvantaged neighborhoods, young people who have dropped out of their studies, young members of civil society associations, young people in rural and urban areas

Nesmy Manigat, former Minister of Education in Haiti, university professor, expert as well as recognized voice in the field of education, enthusiastically accepted to guide this reflection with a group of dynamic young people around a question that seems today also relevant.

"I was happy to mentor the young team of the MUSE Haiti Center on a voluntary basis. This survey did not pretend to be an opinion poll on democracy among all Haitian youth. Nevertheless, it kept its promises to build a meaningful plea for an active and engaged citizenship of young people. It was able to organize, collect and present in an orderly manner testimonies, opinions and wishes to a diverse group of young people regarding the exercise of their rights [...]

[...] Haitian youth are in search of a better future. Most of the time, she believes that the future she dreams of can be found anywhere except in Haiti. Paradoxically, she considers herself to be in transit on her native land. His daily life is filled with disappointment and resentment towards the socioeconomic and political reality of his country. She feels abandoned by her State, marginalized, unsupported and outraged by its material conditions of existence, its situation and no longer trusts State institutions."

[...] Young people want to be supported through public policies that take into account their fundamental rights, in particular access to education and technical and vocational training, they mention in their expectations everything that is denied to them today and is nevertheless part and appears to be the minimum such as health services in rural areas, sports and leisure centers. They note a great concentration of economic activities to the detriment of young people in rural areas, they denounce the inequality in employment... "

This edifying survey is essential for any ruler or candidate for a State office, because even if it is not exhaustive, it is nonetheless a source of information to know the frustrations and expectations of the generation that will have to build the future of the country.
