Excellent long-form reporting that revealed the ongoing vulnerability of civilians in Haiti and the inaction of international agencies

This outstanding documentary took an uncompromising look at the shortcomings of international aid and peacekeeping in Haiti six months after the devastating earthquake, reminding the world that the survivors still face urgent crises. Reporter Sebastian Walker covered the disaster in Haiti in January 2010 and stayed with the story in the months that followed as Al Jazeera English’s Haiti correspondent. With Al Jazeera English’s flagship news program Fault Lines, Walker scrutinized international aid organizations, local politics, U.N. peacekeeping and reconstruction plans. The team produced an emotional, accurate and visceral report about the lack of progress in reconstruction.
