    This week marks the third anniversary of the deadly earthquake that devastated much of the Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince. Most of the rubble has been cleared away but the country hasnt necessarily been able to “build back better.” Unemployment is rampant and at least 350,000 Haitians are still living in tents in scattered camps. The U.N. recently made a new humanitarian appeal for 144 million dollars to tackle cholera, homelessness and a food shortage. We talk with Bob Maguire, professor of international affairs and director of the Latin America and Hemispheric Studies Program of the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University about Haiti today.
