It is unclear if LGBT people may adopt or have custody of children. Homosexuality and cross-dressing are seen as taboo, if not also immoral by the largely Catholic Haitians.
In 2013, the Dominican Constitutional Tribunal retroactively removed citizenship from tens of thousands of Dominicans. Most of them are of Haitian descent – a historically marginalized community. This has left them unable to carry out basic civil tasks such as register children at birth, enroll in school and university, participate in the formal economy, or move around the country without risk of detention and expulsion. In 2014, President Danilo Medina’s administration attempted to mitigate the high court ruling with a Naturalization Law aimed at recognizing the citizenship claims of those affected by the 2013 decision.

A group of Caribbean nations has launched a legal case to seek reparations from former slave owning states in Europe. The Caribbean Community, known as Caricom, claims that European governments were responsible for slavery, genocide and racial apartheid. They're calling for an apology and cancelation of debts as part of a ten point plan. What is the legacy of slavery in Haiti, what is the present day slavery that thousands still experience in modern day Haiti, and what are the chances of a legal victory in the courts.

January 14, 2011 During the summer of 2010, three BU Law students, Valerie Kua ('11), Mark Goracke ('12) and Julia Gregoire ('11), interned with a non-profit called Internet Bar Organization to work on the "Haiti Sings" project. The goal was to teach Haitian musicians about their legal rights while encouraging them to showcase their talent over the Internet. BU Law students helped prepare training packages for the musicians, and Gregoire traveled with the team to Haiti to teach a legal workshop and help with French translation. "I was just really excited about the project and the idea of actually doing something," said Gregoire. "In as little as one to two weeks we had found all these people, auditioned 60 people, recorded 20, taught them marketing skills and legal rights, met their ...
