SUNY/CID Wins $6.8M USAID Contract to Support Democratization in Haiti


ALBANY—SUNY/CID was awarded a $6.8 million contract from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to support the re-establishment of a functioning legislature in the Republic of Haiti. "The goal of the three-year project is to help the Haitian Parliament, which has not been in session for the past 2 1/2 years, to develop its legislative capacity and address critical issues such as the need for political inclusiveness, negotiation and power-sharing," said James Ketterer, director of SUNY/CID. "The project also seeks to promote democracy by strengthening Haiti's independent media." Haiti's democratically elected Parliament, composed of a 30-seat Senate and a 99-member Chamber of Deputies, took office in June 2006.
