In January, as the earth shook all of Haiti, and especially the capital Port au Prince, Jean André Victor was there, amid the chaos and devastation. And now, just a few months later, he is in Eugene, amidst the rain and spring flowers. It is a stark contrast, but a change of scenery that will help him have the time and space to work on writing the first textbook on environmental law in Haiti, practice his English (he’s taking a 10 week course at the American English Institute) and share with and learn from ELAW staff attorneys and scientists.
We are thrilled that he is here and will share more about his experiences and expertise over the next few months. Welcome Jean André, byenveni!
