    ABSTRACT

 

The United States and several international organizations have sought since the last years of the Duvalier regime to promote democracy in Haiti through a variety of political and economic pressures.  Major efforts occurred in 1985-1986 with the fall of Jean-Claude Duvalier, in 1990 with the election of Jean-Bertrand Aristide and in 1993-1994 with the reinstatement of Aristide.  In each instance, foreign support and pressure were misdirected but some progress toward democracy resulted despite the misguided foreign policies.
