The Complexity of Conflict and Crime at CCS 2018 in Greece



During the upcoming Conference on Complex Systems (CCS) a special satellite session on the complexity of conflict and crime will be hosted by IAS research fellow Dr. Ana Isabel Barros (TNO) and Dr. Ignacio J. Martinez-Moyano (Argonne National Laboratory / University of Chicago). The session will focus on conflict and crime modelling.

This session will address topics like analysis of thresholds and tipping points of conflict escalation, emergent behaviour of criminal organisations, strategies and interventions for conflict de-escalation, and effectively countering crime. It will foster a conversation about how complex systems analysis can effectively help to address security challenges and make the world a safer place!
