    Join the College Arts and Sciences and the School of Communication on Wednesday, October 14, from 12:30 to 2 p.m. for an interactive academic forum that will examine post-earthquake reconstruction in Haiti and assess the efficiency and effectiveness of foreign aid efforts in the island nation five years after the destructive temblor.

    Raju Singh, World Bank lead economist for Haiti, will share the findings of a new report, Haiti: Towards a New Narrative, that addresses key opportunities and constraints to faster sustainable and inclusive growth in the country. Singh’s presentation will be followed by remarks from Louis Herns Marcelin, associate professor in the Department of Anthropology, who has conducted extensive research in Haiti.

    The forum, which will be held at the School of Communication International Building, Room 3053, will also feature welcome remarks by Leonidas Bachas, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and Gregory Shepherd, dean of the School of Communication, as well as a special message from Felicia Knaul, director of the Miami Institute for the Americas.
