The course is intended to give an introduction to systems engineering and system dynamics and utilize them for this new application. Topics include system architecting, systems mapping, causal loop diagrams, stock and flow diagrams, data sourcing, decision making and game theory. Specific examples of conflict will be presented and various theories of change will be tested with the system models. This course will utilize some recent literature on systems engineering use in peacebuilding.
