Haiti - Social : New Mission of Michel Forst on human rights in Haiti
Michel Forst, the United Nations Independent Expert on the human rights situation in Haiti, Michel Forst, will visit Haiti from January 31 to February 8, 2012 to evaluate the human rights situation there since his last mission in September 2011, and to follow up on recommendations made in his last report to the Human Rights Council.

"I will focus on issues of human rights in the context of the humanitarian crisis, the implementation of a human rights-based approach to reconstruction, preventing impunity for serious human rights violations and the pursuit of reforms in the area of rule of law. I also would like to propose to Haitian authorities a work plan for 2012 with activities addressing the enjoyment of economic and social rights in particular" indicated Mr. Forst at the launch of this first mission in Haiti in 2012.

During his mission the Independent Expert will visit Port-au-Prince and Gonaives. He will meet with the new Haitian authorities, Members of Parliament, the national human rights institution, the diplomatic corps, representatives of Minustah and the UN System in Haiti, as well as members of the diplomatic corps and civil society.
