Issues in policymaking are often referred to as ‘wicked problems’. Such problems require a diverse set of actors to come together and collaborate. We need government, academia, industry, and civil society to question, debate, discuss, and ideate together. In short, we need a dialogue in diversity. Our goal at Fields of View is to design spaces to enable such dialogues using games and simulations – tools based on research at the intersection of social sciences, art, and technology.

We start with problem formulation in the social context. With wicked problems, often articulating ‘what the problem is’ itself is contentious with different perspectives focusing on different aspects of the issue. Therefore it becomes critical to bring in all stakeholders to have a common understanding of the problem. The problem formulation is followed by conceptual modelling of the system at hand, which becomes the basis for the game/simulation design.
