Stability Operations in Haiti 2010: A Case Study   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Introduction: "The stability operation in Haiti from January 14 to June 1, 2010 demonstrated how over a dozen U.S. Government departments and agencies worked together effectively in an unprecedented large-scale foreign humanitarian assistance/disaster relief (FHA/DR) effort. The 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12, 2010, precipitated the operation. The Haiti action, known within the U.S. military as Operation UNIFIED RESPONSE, was not only a whole-of-government, but also a whole-of-nation and global undertaking. The United States played a significant role in the Haiti earthquake relief effort in collaboration with more than 140 countries and over 1,000 nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). Its objective was to alleviate human suffering in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake, establish a safe and secure environment for humanitarian aid distribution, and set the conditions for a transition to a longer-term recovery effort by the Haitian Government, the United Nations (UN), and the NGOs."
