Abstract
Former dictator Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier returned to Haiti 16th of January 2011. Since then several NGO:s and “human right experts” have urged the importance of his prosecution. This essay contains a discussion about Haitian people’s needs, and whether a prosecution of Duvalier is compatible with such needs, or whether it in fact takes focus from them. The situation of the Haitian people is described and the events that led to this situation are studied through Haiti’s history. The essay also contains discussions about these NGO:s and human rights experts’ role in Haiti, prioritization of certain human rights and the act of punishment, and a comparison of two notable Haiti researchers.
