Nexus, the IIASA research blog, creates a space for conversation with the broader IIASA community, policymakers, and general public. Posts are written by IIASA researchers, affiliated scientists, and science writers. Members of the broader IIASA research network may also be invited to contribute posts.

We welcome submissions by IIASA alumni, members of the IIASA network, and IIASA National Member Organizations. For more information please contact us.

Posts give the views of the author, and not the position of the Nexus blog, nor of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis.
