A discussion about consensus decision-making methods and their practical applications.
Producer: George King
Uploaded by: George King
"Anarchism is the belief that people can voluntarily cooperate to meet everyone's needs, without bosses or rulers, and without sacrificing individual liberties. . . . Anarchists struggle for the order that results from the consensual interaction of individuals, from voluntary association." This workshop will explore how consensus decision-making methodologies are central to the anarchist tradition and are meant to ensure that relations remain as noncoercive as possible. This workshop will expand one's understanding of consensus processes, and how they are related to anti-oppression work and could be applied in a variety of situations.

This talk was presented at the third Renewing the Anarchist Tradition conference, at the Institute for Social Ecology, August 2001.
