OHCHR in Haiti

OHCHR works in Haiti through the Human Rights Component of the UN Integrated Office in Haiti (BINUH) and as part of the transition to the new UN Development Framework. The activities of BINUH and the UNCT in Haiti are integrated, with the country team assuming UN programmatic and technical assistance activities. BINUH’s mandate includes advising the government on issues related to promoting and strengthening political stability and good governance, the rule of law, an inclusive inter-Haitian national dialogue, accountability for human rights violations and abuses, and protecting and promoting human rights. The establishment of the special political mission of BINUH followed the closure of MINUJUSTH on 15 October 2019 and marked the end of 15 years of peacekeeping in Haiti.

The Human Rights Service monitors and investigates allegations of human rights violations and abuses, and provides technical assistance to the Office of the National Human Rights Ombudsperson, the Inspectorate General of the Haitian National Police (HNP) and the Inter-ministerial Committee on Human Rights, as well as to civil society and victims’ organisations. It also ensures mainstreaming of human rights in UN action. Read more about OHCHR in Haiti.
