The Dean's Pick

Greetings from PRGS. This email is one of a series of occasional notes forwarding research that I thought would be of interest to you. Today's Dean's Pick is a newly released RAND report on the situation in Haiti.

"Building a More Resilient Haitian State" identifies the challenges to more capable governance in Haiti, suggests ways the influx of aid money can be used for long-term improvements, and proposes a realistic set of actions. Specifically, it recommends that the Haitian state and international donors focus on public administration, justice, security, economic policy, infrastructure, education, and health care. Two of the authors of the study, Senior Economist Keith Crane and Senior Political Scientist Laurel Miller, are featured in a video where they discuss developing a Haitian state-building strategy.

I look forward to connecting with you in the near future and hope this note finds you most well.

All best regards,


Susan L. Marquis
Dean and Distinguished Chair of Policy Analysis
