We encourage a wide range of submissions. Example works include (but are not limited to): Methods and measures pertaining to negative ties and signed graphs; understanding the inner workings of political and legal bodies such as legislatures or courts; understanding how threats within a network create needs for allies, and the implications for nodal power; examining where bullying emerges in schools or organizations; how perception of negative ties poses unique challenges in organizational research; examining how relational ambivalence affects relational trajectories; and how subgroup fault lines affect intra- and inter-group conflict. Please don't forget to choose the 'Negative Ties and Signed Graphs' organised session when submitting your abstract.
