Mobile police teams from the new UN mission in Haiti will bring together local communities and political leaders in efforts to find solutions to the country's peace and justice needs.

Susan Page, Head of the UN Mission for Justice Support in Haiti (MINUJUSTH), believes this "bottom-up and top-down approach" will help strengthen rule-of law-institutions in the Caribbean nation.

MINUJUSTH opened its doors in October and will assist the Government in further developing the national police and promoting and protecting human rights, among other duties.

Ms. Page spoke to Alban Mendes de Leon about its initial six-month mandate.
