This chapter examines the events surrounding the Governors Island Agreement (GIA) and the involvement of the UN and the Organization of American States (OAS) to resolve the political crisis in Haiti. It also discusses the key provisions of the agreement and its implementation. The framework for the settlement between Aristide and Cédras was laid out by Dante Caputo. Caputo worked hard to convince Cédras that the High Command's resignation and an early set date for Aristide's return were essential. Both sides expressed reservations over the aspects of the framework and Caputo himself was not certain on whether Aristide's safe return to Haiti could be ensured as quickly as the political circumstances required. Cédras relented, while it took considerable pressure on Aristide to secure, on 3 July, his signature on an agreement he believed provided insufficient guarantees for his return to Haiti.
