Haiti: Quid Pro Quo Multilateralism

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the multilateral 1994 Haiti intervention, an unlikely case of multilateralism for both the operational commitment and regional power explanations. The vast power disparities between the US and Haitian militaries and the absence of regional powers should have meant an interest in minimal multilateralism; the UN-authorized intervention and allied support challenge these explanations.

Keywords: 1994 Haiti intervention; United States; multilateralism; United Nations; military intervention
