On January 12th, 2010 an earthquake shock Haiti for 35 seconds. My child-centered research immediately took off as I tried to understand how the earthquake affected the social networks of children.
From January until August 2010 I lived in Port-au-Prince, Belladere and at the Haitian-Dominican border conducting child-centered-research on the earthquake relocation of Haitian children.
Their stories provide an insider perspective on how children shaped and negotiated their social networks in the immediate post earthquake environment.
