Hispaniola Dialogue

The Hispaniola Dialogue promotes dialogue between the Dominican Republic and Haiti, and among Dominicans and Haitians and other interested individuals and groups around the world, to promote the protection of human rights and the reduction of poverty on the island shared by these two nations. The Dialogue is in keeping with WPI's focus on problems that cannot be addressed through approaches within borders alone, but require transnational collaboration.


The project began with WPI Executive Michele Wucker's acclaimed book, Why the Cocks Fight: Dominicans, Haitians, and the Struggle for Hispaniola (Hill & Wang, 1999/2000).

The Hispaniola Dialogue includes a discussion group, founded in 1997 and comprised of approximately 700 scholars, experts, government officials, activists, and individuals. To join, visit the group homepage at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/dominican/

Jon Anderson's Dominican batey website
Dominican Republic-based photojournalist and essayist Jon Anderson's sensitive compilation of images and essay on the bateyes, the marginalized communities in the sugar cane fields of the Dominican Republic.
"The purpose of this project is twofold: aside from helping advertise the plight of the braceros and helping those who work to help them, I am also very much intent on testing the potential of the web as a new publishing medium and, to some extent, to cultivate new ways of communicating with or even creating our audience," Jon says. "It is my belief that as journalists it is incumbent upon us to explore and exploit new media and ensure that we continue to play an important role in its development."
