Shaping Globalization

The global financial crisis has made one thing clear: we understand global systems much less than we thought, and if we are to meet the challenges of globalization that will define the 21st century we will need a lot of learning.

The EU has set up an open network of researchers under the title “Global Systems Dynamics and Policy” to foster such learning. Out of this effort the idea of Global Systems Science – GSS for short – has emerged. This blog – currently under construction – shall provide a platform for debate about how a research program for GSS might look like, and how it might be implemented.
