Emergent Behaviour in Multi-scale Networks of Networks

 

Challenge the mental images rooted in existing concepts of the global research program that addresses the patterns of behaviour emerging in global networks of networks.

The challenge of globalisation resides to a large extent in the fact that the society of nations is confronted with problems that transcend national boundaries. The global economy as well as global society-environment interactions form highly heterogeneous multi-scale networks that cannot be governed with concepts stemming from the simpler structures formed by hierarchies of nested networks. This work package will challenge the mental images rooted in such concepts and outline the components of the global systems research program that addresses the patterns of behaviour emerging in global networks of networks.
