Dear All,
I would like to ask for opinions or any references that you might offer,
about some empirical work on how network structure influences cooperative
outcomes within game theory.

More precisely, the positions of neighbours (e.g. in terms of power,
centrality, extent of punishment to be carried out and the like), and
relatedly the feedback effects, may influence the incentives for
cooperation. In this sense, the way in which the architecture of the network
and cooperative outcomes are related becomes an issue of concern (in games
like prisoner's dilemma and the like).

Are there any references of empirical work that highlights these issues?

Thank you very much in advance for your help.
