The networked structure of community welfare generates a complex system 
where organizations, local institution, third sector actors or 
individuals are knitted together. Such knitting shapes both formal and 
informal structures of participation for the construction of 
intervention communities and affects their results and performance at 
multiple levels. SNA provides a wide range of measures, tools, useful 
not only for reading and interpreting the phenomena of community welfare 
network, community participation, and governance, but also for 
implementing network policies with the aim of generating social change.

This organized session aims to bring together studies on community 
welfare and formal and informal participation networks that address the 
structure of networks and the implications of one-level o cross-level 
processes that lead to the emergence of relationships and outcomes at 
various levels. Interested participants are allowed to submit 
theoretical, methodological, or empirical papers, contributing to one or 
several of the following thematic areas:
      a)    Multilevel network between social and other kinds of networks 
within and across community settings: how networks structure is affected 
by the affiliation of individuals or organizations to events or groups;
      b)    Formal and informal participation networks between various 
actors in the intervention communities: what factors in these networks 
are able to influence individual and community performance.

Multilevel analysis, Network approach, Communities, Welfare, Third 
sectors, Community performance, Formal and informal Network, Network 
governance, Inter-organizational network, Inter-personal network

Deadline: May 31
