The public policy analysis of complex social issues in the context of interconnected globalized world requires a multidimensional approach. Such an approach requires the ability to look beyond the borders of respective disciplines of knowledge and explore possible ways of seeing the issue at hand before defining the research problem. This workshop is aimed to provide such a learning experience to researchers in social sciences, and other related disciplines, with an interest in contributing to public policy at a regional, or national, or international level. The workshop takes place at the Complex Systems Research Centre (CORE) at the National University of Ireland, Galway, end of April 2014. More information is coming in due time. Organizers of the workshop are Peter Richmond and Srinivas Raghavendra.
