Masterclass Economics, Environment and Governance
Governance arrangements for wicked problemsMany contemporary policy issues carry characteristics of wicked problems. They are ill-defined, contested and feature complex technical and social dynamics. Above all, wicked problems are highly resistant to solutions because they have no “stopping rule” and because today’s problems emerge as a result of yesterday’s solution.
The master class addresses the following topics:
- How can wicked problems be identified?
- Which governance arrangements can be proposed?
- How to evaluate these governance arrangements?
We will use examples from the research of our group: adaptation to climate change in Europe, food security in Ghana, sustainable palm oil in Indonesia and intensive livestock in the Netherlands.
