The poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, Haiti continues to struggle with the aftermath of a massive earthquake that devastated its capital city, Port-au-Prince, with a death toll in the hundreds of thousands. Two years after the disaster, questions remain about Haiti's long-term recovery, given the inherent weakness of its political institutions and its economy.
