Notes:
Reviews the discourse, practice and outcomes associated with three parallel stabilization initiatives undertaken in Haiti between 2007 and 2009. Although they shared many similar objectives, the paper describes how these separate interventions mobilized very different approaches. The specific focus is on United States, United Nations and combined Brazilian, Canadian and Norwegian stabilization efforts and their implications for humanitarian actors, including the International Committee of the Red Cross and Medecins Sans Frontieres.
