Networked Global Problem Solving in international conflicts


  • Social media has transformed our democratic institutions in such a way that what takes place in the more traditional institutions of power (…) has become almost a sideshow"

    Grimsson, president of Iceland

  • Global networks of engament


Global networks

  • The internet can be seen as an analogy as well as a medium for global networks.

  • Facebook connects more than 900 million people worldwide

  • Conscious engagement through trade, internet, social movements

  • Unconsciously interconnected: “My life, my body, my individual existence become part of another world, of foreign cultures, religions, histories and global interdependencies without my realizing or expressly wishing it” (Beck)

Global networks


Networked global problem solving

  • Climate change, terrorism, inequality for global networks. etc.. are global in their scope and thus require global solutions.

  • The system of international institutions in place to address these issues is based on national self-interest and seems incongruent with the scale and severity of contemporary global challenges.

  • Can global networks provide a new arena for global problem-solving?

  • Tapscott: “We are in the early days of an explosion of new, networked models to solve global problems”
