Governance Modelling Research

BLACKSTAR Governance Modelling

Governance Modelling research is a core concern of the Blackstar Systems research network. Governance of all types can be modelled (simulated) just as any other system can, taking the theoretical approach of cybernetics.

From a cybernetic perspective, systems of governance are essentially organisms based on complex feedback loops between their perceived environment and intended goal state. The aim of such modelling is to optimize governance, and offer empirical solutions to problems in that field.

The two organizations which work with Blackstar in this area are the Europa Metacity project, and the Zero State community.
