I am par- ticularly grateful for the enormous help received from Wilson Center Program Associate, Christine Zaino, who oversaw to the final editing and production of the entire report, and also contributed significantly to the Overview Chapter. Additionally, the assistance and guidance of Wilson Center Program Assistant, Verónica Colón-Rosario, was invaluable in overseeing financial management and administrative components. Several Wilson Center interns also contributed im- portant research and proof-reading help including Angela Budzinski, Alejandra Argueta, and Mary Kate O’Connell. An extra special thanks to Wilson Center research intern Kathryn Moffat who kept the project organized, contributed srcinal research, and cross-checked innumer- able footnotes. She also helped write the report’s executive summary for which I am enormously grateful. Finally, I would like to express my special thanks to the Open Society Foundation and its Latin America Program for their support for this project. We are enormously grateful for their trust in our ability to carry out this work. Eric L. Olson December 2014
