The Theory of the Methodology of Societal Complexity and the Compram Methodology see for more information

There are major real life problems in our society. Problems as poverty, violence against women and girls, war, terrorism, credit crisis, cyber crime and many more. Citizens, governments, legal practitioners and legal scientists overstate law as a means to handle these real life problems. What is the role of law in handling real life problems? In this research we analyze legal problem solving, legal problems and legal solutions and relate the results to the theory of the methodology of societal complexity

 

The Theory of the Methodology of Societal Complexity and the Compram methodology in particular, offer the opportunity to handle complex societal problems in a scientific and sustainable way. The Theory of the Methodology of Societal Complexity describes the problem handling process of complex societal problems from awareness of the problem to evaluation of the interventions. The Compram methodology describes the handling of societal complexity from the moment the problem is put on the political agenda to the evaluation of the problem and the problem handling process. The Compram methodology focuses on a wider spectrum of the problem handling process than most methodologies. Most methodologies focus only on small parts of the problem handling process.
