The Global Atlas of Social and Cultural Complexity

The FRINGE Centre (the Centre for the Study of Social & Cultural Complexity at University College) will launch the Global Atlas of Social and Cultural Complexity on 17 March 2016. The Global Atlas of Social and Cultural Complexity will be the first multimedia online resource focused on under-researched practices which are often seen as non-transparent or hidden to an outsider. The launch will provide a taster of informality, with short introductions that illuminate informal and invisible practices from across the globe.
