The Reflect! platform is designed to organize Reflective Consensus Building on Wicked Problems in small teams.
Examples of wicked problems are
- complex policy issues such as health care reform, poverty, global trade, or climate change;
- the regulation of new and emerging technologies;
- the design of products and technologies; and
- planning processes that involve different stakeholders.
The complexity of wicked problems results from the fact that they can be framed in a number of different ways, depending on varying interests, world-views, values, or differences regarding the scale on which people think the problem should be addressed.
The Reflect! Lab develops technologies that support self-correcting reasoning and reflective deliberation in teams.
