The Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti (IJDH) was established to respond to February 2004's violent and unlawful interruption of Haiti's democratic process. The Institute fights for the return of democracy and the rule of law to Haiti by documenting human rights violations, disseminating accurate information and pursuing legal claims in Haiti and abroad. IJDH collaborates closely with grassroots groups, human rights organizations and others working to promote human rights in Haiti, especially the political, social and economic rights of the majority of Haitians who are poor.
