Social and dynamic network analysis

WithRobin H. Lemaire, Jörg Raab

In this chapter we discuss the use of social and dynamic network analysis for researching networks and collaboration in the public sector. Network analysis is an analytical toolbox and method that is strongly linked with the study of networks and collaboration, and has recently increasingly been applied in public management research. The chapter discusses the relevance of the method for public management research and how social network analysis has been applied in the field as well as its potential for future research. Finally, the chapter lists the most important literature, software and other resources for conducting social network analysis.
