This workshop took place in Bogota on October 18-19 under the joint auspices of the Colombian Vice Presidency and the Center for the Study of Civil War (CSCW). The workshop brought together two topics that are usually studied separately.
A second workshop was also held, back to back with this one, October 20-22 on "Negotiation, Discussion and Agreements". It was organized jointly by the former Mayor of Bogota , Antanas Mockus, and Jon Elster. This even included a public address by Stephen Holmes on Security and Civil Liberties.
