Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti (IJDH)

Nonprofit or community organization

Description

The Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti (IJDH) and its Haiti-based affiliate, the Bureau des Avocats Internationaux (BAI), have over 19 years of demonstrated success enforcing Haitians' human rights in Haiti and abroad. We work in four areas: 1) impact litigation that opens the doors of Haitian, international and U.S. courts to precedent-setting human rights cases; 2) documentation that provides public officials, human rights advocates and grassroots activists the reliable information they need to speak up for human rights in Haiti; 3) transnational grassroots advocacy that compels governments and powerful institutions in Haiti and abroad to respect Haitians' human rights; and 4) systemic capacity building that develops a corps of Haitian human rights lawyers and advocates trained to fight for sustainable change in their country.

The organizations' successes include spearheading the Raboteau Massacre trial, considered Haiti's most successful complex litigation, and Yvon Neptune v. Haiti, one of the most important human rights cases in the Americas and the first Haiti case to be decided by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. The New York Times called the BAI's Mario Joseph "Haiti's most prominent human rights lawyer."
