Abstract (please use no less than 300 words to describe your proposal)
This is a personal story about promoting collaboration in virtually impossible situations. It starts with my experience in Balkan communities and its conflicts and explores some issues with which I dealt as Wikimedia steward and member of a couple of Wikimedia committees. I will present what I see as the options and limits in such circumstances, how should we react and how we shouldn't, what is acceptable to do and what is not.
Track (People and Community/Knowledge and Collaboration/Infrastructure)
