Multiscale Governance [article]

David Pastor-Escuredo, Philip Treleaven
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Multi-scale governance integrates decision-making processes with signaling, sensing and leadership mechanisms to drive thriving societal systems with real-time sensitivity.  ...  Future societal systems will not be only multiscale in terms of the social dimension, but also in the temporality.  ...  Integrating dynamics systems, networks and multi-scale systems it is possible to design new governance frameworks.  ...

Polycentric Integrated Assessment

Claudia Pahl-Wostl
2002 Integrated Assessment  
We advocate a new approach of a polycentric understanding of policy making that invokes instances of social learning at different levels of societal organization.  ...  Most choices will be made at the regional scale and will invoke short-term decisions that are not directly related to climate change.  ...  A generic approach to represent decision making using belief networks for the filtering and processing of information and probabilistic reasoning.  ...
