The Haitian Military Intelligence System

  • Michel S. Laguerre


The study of civil-military relations must be carried out not only at the macro-sociological level, where the army and civil society are seen as two distinguishable entities, but also at the micro-sociological level, that is, where the interactions and relations of specific units of the army with segments of civil society are examined.1 The focus here on the intelligence component of the army — as it has evolved from the withdrawal of the US occupation forces in 1934 to the election of a civilian, Father Jean Bertrand Aristide, as president in 1990 — allows us to study the interaction at various levels between that unit and the non-military intelligence sector of the Haitian government and the civilian government at large.
