Expressly Biological: An Introduction to the Evolution of Governance

The Evolution of Governance program at One Earth Future is a peculiar thing. As with the other research tracks at OEF, the aim is to develop a cohesive theoretical “blueprint” for good governance structures—ones that foster peace rather than foment conflict. Furthermore, much like the other tracks, this blueprint will be empirically tested (with both laboratory and field data). The key distinction, however, lies in the approach: the work of the Evolution of Governance program is expressly biological.
