Creating Web-based, Meta-Simulation Environments for Social Dynamics in an Interactive Framework for Public Policy Analysis and Design

Date: 
27 September 2021

Simulations of Social Dynamics play an important role in public policy analysis and design as they help to estimate the effects that alternative policies can have on society. We argue for a tight integration of a novel generation of social dynamics meta-simulation tools in a policy development framework. Such tools provide a common, agent-based modeling and concurrent execution environment for creating and running such simulations. Furthermore, they enable reasoning about simulation outcomes by examining and ranking alternative policy objectives based on a set of criteria supplied by the designer. We describe our implementation of such an idea in Politika, our Elixir-based web framework for interactive, meta-simulation-based policy design and provide appropriate examples as part of the PolicyCLOUD EU research project.
