SIG-SCSS: Social Conflict and Social Simulation

The SIG on Social Conflict and Social Simulation aims to explore the use of social simulation to understand social conflict mechanisms. It has a theoretical, methodological and applied focus. It operates through personal collaborations and joint publications and organises thematic and panel sessions at SSC conferences.

The notion of social conflict entails a broad range of phenomena, such as latent confrontation as well as manifest war. Its scope ranges from inter-individual to international relations. Viewed in this broad sense, conflicts are an essential and inevitable component of social relationships. A scientific comprehension of these various dimensions of social conflicts includes disciplinary accounts ranging from social psychology to the theory of international relations

The SIG leader is Armando Geller (Scensei)
