- While the study of global governance is moving from a focus on component-dominated to interaction-dominated systems, the present paper reviews development in governance theories from a complexity perspective and discuss how governance systems can be represented in terms of multi-layered networks.
- Such representation is useful to foster interdisciplinary collaborations between researchers working in global governance/international relations and data science/computational science.
- The combination of a data-driven approach with computational modelling paves the way to both contribute to a more fundamental understanding of how multilateral governance systems work and to address some important contemporary questions about institutional complexity and the effectiveness of governance design.
