(p.1) 1 Introduction
Decision-Making in the UN Security Council

David Malone

Oxford University Press

Between 1990 and 1997, the United Nations was involved in a broad range of activities in support of democracy in Haiti. Those activities reflected the international concern over a military uprising that ousted Haiti's democratically elected President, Jean–Bertrand Aristide, in September 1991. This book seeks to answer the central question: how and why did the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) reach its decisions on the Haitian crisis and on its aftermath, following restoration of the legitimate Government in 1994? In seeking to address this question, this book tracks the path of the Haitian crisis on the UNSC's agenda in 1990–1993. It highlights the motivation and role of key actors in and around the UNSC from 1993 to 1997: the USA, other members of the UN Secretary-General's Group of Friends of Haiti, UNSC members, members of other relevant groupings at the UN, the UN Secretariat, and the Haitian protagonists. It also examines the UNSC as an institutional framework for action. Finally, it assesses the success on the ground of the UNSC's approach.
