This work adresses issues of emergency aid and sustainable humanitarian action. The research aims to contribute to a better understanding of the conditions which provoke the manifestation of international compassion for mobilizing aid in an emergency situation, after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti: providential misfortune and the experience of rescue institutions.

This research will be implemented using a two-pronged approach, which is both philosophical in its reasoning and its effects, and socio-anthropological in its approach to the Haitian field. It is both an analytical and critical exercise which subscribes to an applied philosophy approach to the social questionings of post-earthquake Haiti.
