Global Issues


This series comprises three principal themes: the interaction of human and natural systems; cooperation and conflict; and the enactment of values. There is an underlying emphasis on the examination of complex systems and casual relations in political decision-making; problems of knowledge; authority, control and accountability in issues of scale; and the reconciliation of conflicting values and competing claims. The concentration throughout is on an integration of existing disciplines toward the clarification of political possibility as well as impending crises.
