This paper explains that the latest era of the UN presence in Haiti started during September 1991 when President Aristide's democratically elected administration was ousted by a military government under the leadership of General Raoul Cedras. The author points out that recently, in 2004, the Security Council set up the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH). The mission was mandated to secure and stabilize the environment, political process and human rights. The paper concludes that, in the final analysis, the Haitian administration and the people will be required to assume ownership of an agenda to guarantee its long-term success. However, presently, Haiti is unable to tackle the internal problems on its own and the international partners must, extend timely, sufficient and consistent support to the new authorities.
