Political Complexity Overview

In this video we take an over view of political complexity, we start off with a general discussion surrounding political science and its historical development. We then go on to identify the current political context and the need for an alternative paradigm in political analysis. Finally, we talk about the different aspects of this new approach and how complexity theory can help us to better understand governance and political organization in an age of connectivity, looking at the ideas of interdependence, networks, and adaptation.
