A new website

Dear friends of the Coordination Europe-Haiti,

It is with great pleasure that we present our new website. Over the past few months we have worked hard to give the website a new outlook. We are proud to present you the result. A big compliment to website designer Mark van der Bent for his great work.

The logo of the platform was completely redesigned. The new logo, with the colors of the Haitian flag, symbolizes the connection that we want to make between Haiti and Europe. A connection for jointly promoting human rights and sustainable development.

On our website you will find key information about the Coordination Europe-Haiti: mission, vision, structure, advocacy priorities, public statements and members.

There is a section with news feeds from key website and Twitter accounts. On a regular basis new opinion articles will be posted online.

For those not so familiar with the structure of EU-Haiti relations, we present clear and up-to-date information about diplomacy, dialogue, trade and development cooperation.

Every two months we will send out a digital newsletter, both in French and English. Feel free to alert other Haiti friends and encourage them to register.

We hope the website and the newsletter will serve to strengthen international solidarity with Haiti.

On behalf of the Steering Committee,

Evert-Jan Brouwer, coordinator 


In view of the current political crisis in Haiti, the Coordination Europe-Haiti has published a new statement, entitled 'Towards a Haitian solution of the current political crisis'. You will find the statement in the 'Issues' section.
