Futures Studies in Postnormal Times

Futures Studies in Postnormal Times

The International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) – East and South East Asia, in collaboration with the Center for Postnormal Policy and Futures Studies (CPPFS) organized a three-day workshop in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from January 31 – February 2, 2020.

As a follow up to the two previous workshops (‘Islam and Futures Literacy’ and ‘Creating Futures: From Literacy to Fluency’), the “Futures Studies in Postnormal Times” workshop introduced the notion of ‘postnormal times’ and used its approach and concepts to study and explore alternative futures. Participants learned to deal with complexity and contradictions, uncertainty and ignorance, and engaged in exclusive hands-on training to investigate different futures for different tomorrows, and identified potential postnormal futures for Malaysia.
