Featuring two outstanding experts:

Professor Silvio Torres-Saillant, founder of the CUNY Dominican Studies Institute, Professor in the English Department, formerly headed the Latino-Latin American Studies Program in the College of Arts and Sciences, Syracuse University and co-founder, La Casita Cultural Center, an organization opened in the Near West Side of the City of Syracuse with the mission to create bridges of communication, collaboration, and exchange linking Syracuse University with the Latino population of the city and promoting the Hispanic heritages of Central New York.

Jocelyn McCalla, human rights activist and expert, founder of the Haitian Studies Association, former Executive Director of the National Coalition for Haitian Rights, and of the New Jersey Immigration Policy Network, and former Board member of the National Immigration Forum, the NY Immigration Coalition, as well as former Advisory Board member of Human Rights Watch/Americas.

The Panelists will be discussing the emerging conflicts between the two neighboring countries in the island and practical ways to prevent and manage similar conflicts in the future. Central to this Panel discussion broadcast is the DR’s Constitutional Court ruling on the question of “Citizenship rights to Dominicans born primarily of Haitian immigrant parents in the Dominican Republic”.
