What strategies have been used by the government to construct their cultural politics of belonging in recent Haitian history? Carlo Handy Charles’ research explores how these plays out amongst Haitian immigrants in Canada in light of transnational migration. This research also analyzes the ways in which national identity underlines the Haitian diaspora’s ongoing social, economic and political connections to the politics of Haiti.
