The Central African Civil Wars have resulted in numerous casualties, destroyed infrastructure, and the killed chances of citizens to access clean water, health care, and nutrition. While the Central African Republic Civil Wars are causing a humanitarian crisis that needs to be addressed, these issues can be attributed to the political unrest the Central African Republic continuously encounters. Such unrest is indicated through the rising violence of the Séléka and Anti-balaka, diminishing the control and power of the central government, an issue further exasperated by the appearance of militia members in government positions. One such occurrence of this widespread governmental corruption is the former presidency of Michel Am-Nondokro Djotodia: a leader of the Séléka, as well as the overthrow of Christian president François Bozizé Yangouvonda, which lead to Djotodia’s presidency. The particular reasons for the conflict stem from the warring religions or the militias: the Christian Anti-balaka, and the Muslim Séléka, as well the fight to control diamond mines, and cattle wars contribute to the hostilities in The Central African Republic.
Currently in a similar situation to that of the Central African Republic, the Republic of Haiti has enlisted the services of United Nations Peacekeeping Operations internally. Continually relating the vast history of coups, political corruption, and uprisings, The Republic of Haiti has obtained a unique perspective and situationally experienced viewpoints on the crisis of CAR due to its coups, gang relations in politics, assassinations of public officials, and attempts at democracy.
The Republic of Haiti is opposed to unrepresented leadership and forced coups. Therefore, in no uncertain terms will the Republic of Haiti be inclined to seek an increasingly democratic take on the Central African Republic Crisis. The Republic of Haiti also seeks to address the humanitarian and human rights crises by the approach of instating aid to assist the developing nation, as well as returning deserters to simplify and rebuild the government and economy. A resolution favoring the rebuilding of a government free of the Séléka and Anti-balaka forces, and the expansion of humanitarian aid to protect the people would be strongly regarded by The Republic of Haiti. Continually, The Republic of Haiti seeks that the UN increasingly fund the MINUSCA forces and other peacekeepers to improve moral and ethical thinking: lending itself to a peaceful solution as indicated in Resolution SPECPOL/4/1.1.
