Understanding systemic change, complexity and development




A conversation between Dr Jean Boulton, University of Bath, lead author of Embracing Complexity and centre researcher Belinda Reyers

In this video, Dr Jean Boulton (Department of Social and Policy Sciences at the University of Bath), lead author of Embracing Complexity, is in conversation with Prof Belinda Reyers (GRAID, Stockholm Resilience Centre and Future Africa, Univ Pretoria). They explore how complexity thinking can inform our understanding of how change comes about, and, based on their practical experience, the implications for International Development. Complexity-informed frameworks can provide perspectives that are better aligned to the challenges faced in a world that is increasingly complex, volatile and hard to anticipate.
