Over the last century, many thousands of Haitians have settled in the Dominican Republic.


Yet still today they face systematic discrimination by the Dominican state and society. This book examines the origins and changing nature of Haitian immigration, and describes the efforts being made to establish and protect the rights of Haitians and Haitian-Dominicans in the Dominican Republic.  It is a fascinating story, superbly told by authors who have worked in the field of social development, migration and human rights in the Dominican Republic for many years.  First published in English in 2004.
