Regine Dupuy McCalla

In 1997 she published a report for the Open Society Institute called Haitian Boat People. "The research for this report was conducted and chronicled by Regine Dupuy-McCalla, a student at Rutgers Law School and a summer associate at the Forced Migration Projects. Ms. Dupuy-McCalla visited Haiti from July 17 to August 4, 1996, to interview repatriated asylum seekers and various organizations. With assistance from both the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the National Coalition for Haitian Rights (NCHR), she interviewed scores of Haitians in Port-au-Prince, Petit Goave, Port-de-Paix, Dame Marie, and Anse d'Hainault. Interviews were conducted with repatriates as well as Haitians who expressed a desire to leave Haiti. Some of those interviewed were members of "refugee" organizations. Names of individuals have been changed at their request to ensure confidentiality. In addition, Ms. Dupuy-McCalla met with Haitians living in New York and Miami, most of whom had come to the United States as asylum seekers." [1]
