IN HAITI, OAS/UN
The International Civilian Mission in Haiti was created in February
1993, during the coup d'état, at the request of President Aristide,
to observe the human rights situation in Haiti. It is the first
joint mission between the United Nations
(UN) and a regional organization, the Organization
of American States (OAS).
The Mission is dedicated to verifying the respect
of human rights. After the return to constitutional order in October
1994, the Mission expanded its work to include the promotion of
human rights and institution building.
