First Blalock lecture of 2021 is TOMORROW
: July 1, 2021, 7:30pm EDT
: Tina Eliassi-Rad, Northeastern University
: What can Complexity Science do for Democracy?
: In this talk we will discuss the following questions. What is democratic backsliding? Is democratic backsliding an indicator of instability in the democratic system? If so, which processes potentially lead to this instability? If we think of democracy as a complex system, how can complexity science help us understand and mitigate democratic backsliding? This talk is based on these two papers: K. Wiesner et al.(2018)
in European Journal of Physics and T.Eliassi-Rad et al. (2020)
in Humanities & Social Sciences Communication.
