Systems Science and Social Science Foundations of Computer-Assisted Policy Analysis

Chapter
Part of the Interdisciplinary Systems Research / Interdisziplinäre Systemforschung book series (IW)

Abstract

Originally developed in the technical sciences, computer simulation has over the past decade been increasingly used for the simulation of processes in societal systems and as a tool of policy analysis. New scientific and socio-political problems arise in this connection, to which solutions are for the greater part still in their infancy. The article provides a survey of the specific requirements of simulations of societal systems, in particular with respect to their use in computer-assisted policy analysis, of foundations available in the social and the systems sciences, of research gaps, of the problems of application, and of the relevant literature.
