Modeling Sociocultural Influences on Decision Making : Understanding Conflict, Enabling Stability - image 1 of 1

About this item

The 23 chapters in this volume examine how advances in information and social media technology, along with social science and modeling and simulation tools, can be used to understand how sociocultural context influences decision making, how cultural influences can be characterized and modeled, how these models can be used to facilitate group decision making across cultural contexts, and the challenges in breaking down barriers to understanding decision making across cultures. Researchers from the US and Europe consider current cross-cultural theories of human behavior; key entities, attitudes, social relations, and behaviors to look at in cross-cultural models; the best methods and tools to capture and represent models; types and sources of data to create or validate models; classes of global societal needs these theories and models are useful for, such as global policy and urban planning; how modeling and simulation for sociocultural analysis will change due to technology; how to collect data; how to counter denial and deception to understand security and stability in nations; how to overcome biases to gain better understanding; and the validity and applicability of cross-cultural models to different environments in terms of understanding conflict and instability.
