In this issue:
CFR's Kara C. McDonald writes that Haiti's earthquake lays bare woeful political and economic dysfunctions, but in the global disaster response, there is a chance to get aid right--"to secure a more consistent and lasting commitment to Haiti's political and social stability."
In this CFR podcast, Edward C. Luck of the International Peace Institute, says that Haiti's horrific earthquake is a setback for the country's slowly improving development. He argues that while international efforts are important, especially in providing relief, ultimately Haiti's development must be driven by Haitians.
