Inequity Studies and Complexity Theory: A Horizontal Scanning of the Coalition Between the Two Concepts
Karn Paneetsin, Chiang Mai University, Thailand
Current debate and study regarding inequity have been largely effective at documenting the patterns and trends of both individual distribution and between-group of various perspective outcomes with both tangible and intangible, and some extent of the causes and consequences. But it has not been very successful yet in connecting those interconnections and relationships of factors within that inequity that causes and maintains those conditions in each domain systematically and examined as a whole. This is due to contemporary human society being complex, with inequity as a multidimensional problem. There is significantly less research to inform policy and practice about interventions to reduce it, according to insufficient knowledge body regarding a holistic picture of the situation. It may also require more attention to uncover the mechanisms that perpetuate inequity and produce interventions that disrupt and staunch the growth of phenomena. How we can understand a holistic picture of inequity phenomena in certain defined societies remain one of the biggest question and challenge for this field of study. Especially in contemporary social systems, it is possible to define objects as networks of interaction between social subjects that communicate and in relationships with each other as a system.
Consequently, inequity is possible to think in the same way. It is necessary to discuss the existence of a closer link between this social phenomenon and its systematic behavior. This is due to a requirement for systemic solutions grounded in the enriched vision of the complexity theory ways of thinking.
