This chapter discusses salient points on UNSC decision-making with respect to Haiti and contributes to an understanding of how the council operated over this particular issue. The important factors determining the Council's decisions on Haiti included those explaining how and why the issue found its way on to the Council's agenda, those shedding light on the motivations and roles of key actors, and those pertaining to the Council as an institutional framework for action. This chapter attempts to assess the effectiveness of UNSC strategies on Haiti, examines the nature of national interests at play in the Haiti crisis, seeks to establish whether the UNSC's action on Haiti represents an instance of humanitarian intervention, and ends by discussing the extent to which the Haiti case can be regarded as precedential.
