Chris Marcum and Carter Butts published in Policy Studies Journal

Published on January 26, 2012 by

An article by NCASD lab Alumnus Chris Marcum along with longtime lab-collaborator Christine Bevc (UNC) and lab director Carter Butts will be featured in an upcoming special edition of the Policy Studies Journal on network statistics. “Mechanisms of Control in Emergent Interorganizational Networks” uses comparative historical network data and Butts’s network inference model to learn about how authority relations are delegated across organizational networks during disaster responses. The results show that organizations exercise control through direct channels mediated by brokerage roles, or through indirect interaction. These findings contest the long-held belief that direct interaction alone is sufficient to delegate authority relations in these types of networks.
