- Social network models for natural resource use and extraction, Ken A. Frank, 2011
The analysis of social networks has tremendous capacity to inform social science and policy about how people extract natural resources (e.g. Prell et al., 2009). Attention to social networks frees us from the typical assumptions that individuals act independently or are independent conditional on membership in common organizations (Frank, 1998). Instead attention to social networks embraces the relational (Emirbayer, 1997), and, as it does so, provides a potential bridge between different disciplines and modes of research.
