Haiti / Dominican Republic

The goals of this newly-expanded section include the sponsorship of research at LASA Congresses; the promotion of networking on comparative analyses of themes or problems common to the two countries; and the promotion of discussions around sensitive issues, including refugees and immigration, economic integration, trafficking and smuggling, and racism. Section leaders hope to promote projects of mutual benefit to scholars from, or concerned with, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, and thus to (indirectly) benefit the countries themselves.
