Dynamic Network Actor Models

Prof. Dr. James Hollway (Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies)
Place:
SOCIUM Research Center on Inequality and Social Policy
Room: 3.3380
Mary-Somerville-Straße 3
28359 Bremen
Time:
12 - 4 p.m.
Organization:

The workshop on network dynamics introduce the R package "Goldfish" that was developed to analyze and model networks using dynamic network actor models (DyNAMs).

In a recently published paper, James Hollway and his colleagues write that DyNAMs are

  • network models that allow researchers to control for and explicitly test hypotheses about observational dependence,

  • actor-oriented and conceive of network ties as the expression of actors’ preferences and available opportunities,

  • model coordination between the two actors involved in the creation of a tie,

  • more precise than existing panel-based models as they allow to draw inference from more granular time-stamped data,

  • permit simultaneous tests of hypotheses about weighted, windowed, and signed processes.

DyNAMs thus offer an alternative to stochastic actor oriented models (Siena) and exponential random graph models (ERGM).

The workshop will be taught in English.

If you would like to attend this workshop, please send a short email to Sebastian Haunss (haunss[at]uni-bremen.de) until January 8th, latest.
Workshop participants will then receive more detailed information about how to install "Goldfish" on their own computer.

How do Environmental Norms Enter the Trade Regime? A Network-Theoretical Perspective

Prof. Dr. James Hollway (Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies)

Using the example of environmental norms appearing in trade agreements, James Hollway develops an analysis of legal innovation based on a complex adaptive systems perspective and network theory. With this he can show that legal innovation is mainly an endogenous process and that contrary to prevailing wisdom, power asymmetries are less relevant.
