Endogenous Institutions and Political Conflict


The UC Berkeley Positive Political Theory group organized a workshop on Endogenous Institutions and Political Conflict that will take place on the Berkeley campus. The goal of the workshop was to bring together a group of scholars who share related interests on institutions. The workshop took a broad view of institutions, such as peace settlements, political transitions, and power sharing arrangements. The unifying theme of the workshop was that institutions or key aspects of them are often an outcome of some underlying process. During the day and a half meeting, participants presented six papers and shared ideas about the general theme of institutional development in the shadow of war and the threat of violence. The workshop was held in the Harris Room (119 Moses Hall) at the Institute of Governmental Studies. For the workshop schedule, please click here. For workshop papers, please click here.
