Power and Networks
Ainhoa de Federico de la Rúa (University of Toulouse, France), Narciso Pizarro (Complutense University of Madrid, Spain) & Reyes Herrero (Complutense University of Madrid, Spain)
This session is conceived for presentations concerning research on power in social networks. Research projects presented here share a number of common principles:
- Power is not conceived as an attribute of individuals or of groups. It is not even conceived as an attribute of dyadic relations but as a social structure.
- They concern empirical research on different manifestations of power in contemporary societies.
- They rely on some methodological approach to analyze social networks.
- They cover a variety of countries and social structures.
