Rethinking Development examines the unfolding of a future of growing uncertainty, in which environmental factors have begun to bring about serious social, economic and geopolitical changes.

As the world is growing more and more complex, it is increasingly necessary to challenge conventional wisdom.

SEI brings together different approaches and methodologies in order to uncover new patterns and unexpected relationships.Focal areas include production, consumption and trade patterns; new dimensions in linking security and sustainability; explorative scenario analysis; integrated assessments of policy impacts; and new approaches to understanding the socio-economics of a finite world.
