Abstract:     
Even in the twenty-first century, violence and death followed elections in Africa and elsewhere in the developing world. Though post-electoral conflict and violence has a number of possible causes and plausible explanations, this article examines the island nation of Mauritius and considers the role that the structure of its electoral systems play in lessening post-electoral ethnic violence, and suggests these systems as a possible model for other countries in the developing world. Most urgently, this article considers what lessons Mauritius may provide for Haiti, an island nation in the developing world with very pressing needs after the January 2010 earthquake.
