Lessons Learned: Law and Military Operations in Haiti

1994-1995

As with the report on the military operations in the Balkans, the Haiti report begins with a brief historical overview of this Caribbean state: from its independence in 1804, through the repressive dictatorships of Francois "Papa Doc" Duvalier and later his son, Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier, to 1994, when the United Nations Security Council cleared the way for an invasion to end the oppressive regime of Lieutenant General Raoul Cedras. The report describes how United States forces and coalition partners executed operations in Haiti (Operation Uphold Democracy) and presents the organization within which judge advocates supported those operations. The final part of the report summarizes lessons learned, while 31 appendices provide such resources as a list of nongovernmental organizations in Haiti, Rules of Engagement (ROE) materials, forms, the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA), the Status of Mission Agreement (SOMA), and excerpts from daily events logs.
