Article Collection: Futures of a complex world

Our world is increasingly riddled with complexity, more so than at any other time in history. For instance, the continuous growth of cities requires more infrastructure, more transport, more mobility. Or take a look at the EU, which has become an ever more complicated arrangement between European countries, balancing between centralised policies and national sovereignty. Our world's complexity is constantly growing. This collection focuses on central challenges in a world of uncertain developments and the need for sustainable futures, as well as critical examination of futures research and its contributions.

Aims and Scope

The journal focuses on the most substantial challenges European countries are facing today in terms of society, politics, economy, education, science and technology, and on the contributions that the European region can make to solving global challenges. The journal seeks to foster thorough analysis of key European policies, such as those for research and education, and addresses topics concerning the future of the European Union in its wider transnational and global contexts.

Topics addressed in the journal are not limited to the development of the EU: European regions “share” common experiences, divisions and conflicts – which altogether build a rich resource for critical examination as well as forward-looking renewal. Articles that raise questions about European futures more generally are welcome, as well as subject-based and interdisciplinary studies, ranging from the social sciences and humanities to the natural sciences and engineering.

Besides its empirical focus the journal promotes discussions about European traditions and perspectives in futures research. In addition, the journal seeks to advance the theoretical and methodological underpinnings of futures studies.
