A Year After the Earthquake in Haiti, the Key to Stability Is to Build the State
By Keith Crane, James Dobbins, and Laurel E. Miller
On the Cover:
On August 25, 2010, two men remove rubble from a Port-au-Prince building destroyed by the January 12 earthquake. By some estimates, only 2 percent of the 250 million cubic meters of debris in the capital city had been cleared, for reasons ranging from lack of equipment and money to an abysmal property records system, leaving most Haitians to live and work around the piles of debris.
