Dear list members,

Last month a special issue of INDECS devoted to modelling related to
human development and poverty, was published online and on paper. All
full text articles are freely available from
Most of the contributions (see below) use some form of Agent Based
Modeling, and as such I hope they will provide interesting reading for
everyone interested in the modeling of complex real world problems.

kind regards,

Ivana Cace
