This report presents the findings, conclusions and recommendations of an 18 month long assessment of the border between the two countries that share the Caribbean island of Hispaniola – Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and the Dominican Republic, a middle-income country. It is along this 380 km border that there is the most contact between the two populations, and the highest likelihood of tension and conflict between them. It is here too that there is the greatest opportunity to have a positive impact on the complex relationship between the two countries.
