I give an overview of recent theoretical work devoted to understanding the observations of collective behavior in small systems (p-p and p-A collisions, or peripheral A-A collisions). I discuss the progress made and some future prospects in relation to the two main facets of this issue, represented, respectively, by the initial state of the collisions and their subsequent dynamics. I highlight new interdisciplinary connections triggered by the investigation of collective phenomena with light ions and finite particle numbers.
