The course explores the relationship between sources and the nature of influencing factors on the behavior of people in varying social, economic, cultural and organizational contexts. Putting emphasis on applying and explaining why people react the way they do to stimuli, the course relies on understanding systemic structures to explain people’s behavior and reactions.
It is designed as an applied systems thinking course and takes a look at sources of power in different contexts such as crisis, governance, social justice, transport systems and renewable energy, among others.
