Sparks into Light : Complexity and the Development Sector

Emma Jones of the Cynefin Company

Summary : Despite our best efforts at union, we live in a world of division. A world where competing political rhetoric causes anger and conflict; where ideological differences lead to privilege, poverty, and discriminative stereotypes, and where mass media is powered by sensationalism and severance in order to sell. A world of power, discrimination, and conflict. But as human beings, through our very nature of being, we have more that brings us together than sets us apart.

The Cynefin Company (formerly Cognitive Edge) has launched a new research programme: Power, Discrimination and Conflict, which focuses on the application of complexity-informed approaches within and across the Development sector. Come and learn about new research methods, epistemic justice, and new theories of change !

Future NetIKX Seminars

Our Programme is currently being planned.

We are working on a variety of topics for future meetings and they will be announced in due course. We hope to hold a meeting on the thinking and writings of Max Boisot and his concept of the ‘i-space’, but this has yet to be confirmed.

Further information will be posted here as it becomes available. Members and those on our mailing list will receive information by email.


Our latest blog is now available.  For a lively account of a break-out group at the NetIKX seminar in  November, at which Teodora Petkova talked on the topic Writing for the Web: Perspectives and Practical Advice. Read our blog here. Speaker slides from some of our seminars will be available to our members soon.  To get your member password, contact     (LC, 02 June 2021)
