Join the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs for its Fall 2023 discussion series—Africa in Focus: Reframing U.S.-Africa Policy.

Following the announcement of a new U.S. Strategy for Sub-Saharan Africa in August 2022, and a second U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in December 2022, the goal of this discussion series is to take stock of U.S.-African relations to date, including unpacking key components of the U.S. strategy, and understanding African perspectives on the current and future trajectory of U.S. engagement on the continent.

Seminar - Open to the Public

HKS Black Student Union and Belfer Center | Haiti on the Global Stage

Wed., Nov. 17, 2021 | 12:15pm - 1:30pm


The HKS Black Student Union and Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs are co-hosting a series of conversations on Haiti. In light of recent events surrounding Haiti, Haitian refugees, and the broader Haitian diaspora, we think it is an important time to look anew at the history and narrative of the country, its relationship to the U.S. and other global powers, and how the Haitian diaspora sees its role in the path forward. The first conversation will be focused on unpacking Haiti's story and its relationship to the U.S. The event will be moderated by Professor Zoe Marks, Lecturer in Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. 

Note: While this virtual event is on the record, the event organizers prohibit any attendees, including journalists, from audio/visual recording or distributing parts or all of the event program without prior written authorization.
