CONFRONTING THE CHALLENGES OF GLOBAL COMPLEXITY

  • Sean Cleary

Abstract

Enabling science to improve policy is essential to provide human security,
advance well-being and protect the global commons. While advances in science
and technology now permit new solutions to mounting challenges, we must
use these breakthroughs to strengthen constructive collective action at
appropriate scales, from the sub-national to the global. We must abandon
hubris and recognize the challenge of navigating complex systems. The sole
purpose of every government is to enable the well-being of its citizens. That
requires thoughtful, honest efforts to design systems of governance, from local
to global, that will promote equity, human security, and sustainability.
KEYWORDS: Governance, complex systems, well-being, collective action
