The Hispaniola Dialogue promotes dialogue between the Dominican Republic and Haiti, and among Dominicans and Haitians and other interested individuals and groups around the world, to promote the protection of human rights and the reduction of poverty on the island shared by these two nations. The Dialogue is in keeping with WPI’s focus on problems that cannot be addressed through approaches within borders alone, but require transnational collaboration.
The project began with WPI Executive Michele Wucker’s acclaimed book, Why the Cocks Fight: Dominicans, Haitians, and the Struggle for Hispaniola (Hill & Wang, 1999/2000).
The Hispaniola Dialogue includes a discussion group, founded in 1997 and comprised of approximately 700 scholars, experts, government officials, activists, and individuals. To join, visit the group homepage at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/dominican/
