This blog will summarise what we have learned so far using social network analysis with the ReSULTS project.
In 1775, at the start of the American Revolution, the British were determined to disarm the rebel militias and seize their military supplies.
A small world network’s resilience comes from a combination of its cluster which encourages cohesion and the interconnections between the clusters which encourages flows of information and ideas. Is there a small world network among Orkney’s livestock farmers? We do not know yet.
My name is Cornell Jackson and I am a social network analyst. I work on the ResULTS project trying to understand how social networks help or hinder the resilience of livestock agriculture. I am focused on the Orkney Islands.
