Their dialogues elaborate into six broad categories: economic history, philosophy, individual rights, political and public opinion studies, social and cultural studies, and legal and constitutional studies. AEI scholars' research is presented at socratic dialogues, lectures, and colloquiums in Guatemala City, Guatemala.
