The Complexity Global School (CGS) is a collaboration between the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) in India, the Santa Fe Institute (SFI) in the USA, and the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in South Africa.


The world is changing. The political and economic paradigms that dominated global affairs in the 20th Century were largely based on linear thinking, and often originated from silos within colonial and other “Western” nation states. The challenges now facing humanity require new ideas. Thus, a new paradigm, global, non-linear, or complex perspective is needed. This 12-day intensive Complexity Global School for Emerging Political Economies program allows participants to bravely challenge the old way of thinking about economics, policy and governance, on one hand, and while on the other hand, explore new ideas and possibilities for just economics.
