The Standing Group on Political Networks is aimed at pushing forward the application of network perspectives and tools to enhance our understanding of a broad range of political dynamics characterizing contemporary societies – from social movements to individual political behaviors to the use of ICTs as a tool for democratic participation.
in this spirit, the Group encourages students and researchers participation to the following events centered on SNA procedures and techniques:
University of Kentucky, Links Centre
University of Manchester, Mitchell Centre
University of Greenwich Business School
ECPR/ University of Lubljiana
Berlin Summer School (general courses on RD)
Furthermore, a set of interesting events will take place over the next Sunbelt Conference, organized by the International Network for Social Network Analysis in Brighton, June 22-28.
Among the dozens of short workshops at the INSNA sunbelt conference I recommend:
