Transition Policies

Connecting System Dynamics, Governance and Instruments in an Application to Dutch Healthcare.

Transition Studies is an emerging, interdisciplinary field concerned with transitions: ‘radical transformation(s) towards a society as a response to a number of persistent problems confronting contemporary modern societies’, according to Grin et. al. (2010).
