SOE 20: Focus Session: Statistical Physics of Political Systems

Donnerstag, 21. März 2024, 15:00–16:45, MA 001

One of todays most pressing and consequential issues are whether democracy worldwide is in decline. Thanks to an increasing collection of quantitative data, there is a rising opportunity to develop new quantitative models on the role the economy, international armed conflicts and other events play in the stabilisation of political regime types such as democracy and autocracy. This situation invites the use of statistical physics techniques, since these processes often take place on many time and length scales, from the singular event to multi-year developments, and from local regions to continents.

Organized by Karoline Wiesner and Paula Pirker Diaz (Universität Potsdam)
