The following looks at what political actors know about their networks.  It
is different in that in looks at a network that is more expansive than the
small office networks that are the usual focus of cognitive network studies.

Does anyone know of studies that document the ability of actors to
accurately recognize the pattern and extent of networks in which they
themselves are embedded, particularly complex community networks? I am
interested in how community and civic actors see and navigate  (or not)
both their immediately surrounding networks and more extended community
networks that are relevant to issue domains.

Thanks in advance.
