Education Program

All day


Our campus is closed to the public for this event.

The 2024 Complexity Global School for Emerging Political Economies is an intensive, 12-day program that provides deep exposure to the latest complex methods, models, and frameworks for thinking about economics and governance. CGS will also provide an opportunity to collaborate on an international group project developing an idea of your interest. The program will run from Sunday, July 21st through Saturday, August 3rd, 2024. There will be 60 students in total recruited across  Latin America, North America, and Europe. The 2023 school was restricted to students from Africa and South Asia. We expect to run schools for other regions in forthcoming years.

Selected students will be early-career, deep thinkers who are either academics from a wide array of disciplines, or, practitioners from the private sector, government, or other civil society organizations. All admitted students will be thinkers who care about the application of creative, intellectual solutions to emergent global challenges. The CGS curriculum is largely based on SFI’s Complex Systems Summer School, which has been running for over 30 years and whose alumni have gone on to obtain top positions in academia, government, and industry. Although this program will be of great use to individuals pursuing a tenure track academic appointment, it is also highly relevant for practitioners seeking to increase their impact! Please note, this is a full-time, residential program. Attendees are expected to participate in all lectures and activities and submit a group project after the conclusion of the school.
