***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/ ***** I am interested in using network analysis to help understand the complexities of making resource management decisions in communities where there are significant numbers of indigenous people. Often in these communities, control is primarily with the non-indigenous community. I am particularly interested in the difficulties non-indigenous people have in understanding the value system of indigenous people. Are you aware of any studies that involve the use of network theory with indigenous communities? Thank you very much for any assistance that you are able to offer. regards, Lorraine _______________________________________________________ Lorraine Bates Regional Geographer Water Security and Sustainable Communities CSIRO Land and Water Email: [log in to unmask] Private Bag No 5 Phone: +61-8-9333 6323 Wembley WA 6913 Fax: +61-8-9333 6211 Australia Web: http://www.clw.csiro.au _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/).
