Research overview <h2>Research focus</h2><p>My research and scholarship focuses on participation and methodologies to promote it, including the role of information systems. The main methodologies developed through research are:&lsquo;Imagine&rsquo;,&lsquo;Triple Task&rsquo;,&lsquo;Multiview&rsquo; and Logical Framework. I am primarily interested in methods which help us to understand complex issues.&nbsp;</p><h3>Formations of Terror</h3><p>2015 - 2017. I have been engaged in scholarship into the phenomena of fear. I have two major publications in this regard:&nbsp;</p><p>Bell, S. 2017. The Formations of Terror. Cambridge Scholars.&nbsp;London. ISBN: 1-4438-4705-4</p><p>and the graphic novel:&nbsp;</p><p>Project Fear.&nbsp;</p><p>There are a host of books about fear but, as yet, there has been little attempt to methodically and systemically assess how fear emerges and is targeted. This highly readable yet rigorous book sets about the methodical assessment of fear as an emergent property. Working from the personal experience of fear as&lsquo;everyman&rsquo;, and then using examples and case studies, it explores the main principles which lie behind the manifestation of fear of all kinds. Using climate change as its specific point of focus, fear is seen to be a major force in problem assessment and analysis and, by accident or intention, a significant confusion to human decision making. By the systemic development of the main features of the Paradigm of Fear and the identification of Fear Amplifying and Fear Attenuating systems, the book demonstrates how fear can be contained, how new social forms can arise and how new behaviours and social qualities can mitigate the Formations of Terror.</p><h3>Sustainability Indicators and Sustainable Community (Imagine and Triple Task)</h3><p>2015.
