Abstract:

The objectives sought in UN Security Council UNSC Resolution 940 have been achieved--but are not irreversible. The next several months are critical. Sustaining the success of Operation Uphold Democracy requires Haiti--and the international community--to confront, simultaneously, crucial transitions in political leadership, law and order, economic assistance, and the international military presence. Due to delays in recruitment and training, Haitian police forces lack most of the supervisors and much of the experience needed to successfully maintain order if the last UN forces leave as scheduled by July 1996. A follow-on international force will likely be needed while the Haitian National Police HNP become capable of autonomous action.
