DA4620 Network Design

In 21st century operational and policy environments, more and more people operate in networks to get things done-community networks, policy networks, inter-agency networks, business networks, international networks etc. Defined as sustained relations between two or more social actors (e.g. individuals, groups, organizations, or nations), networks can be formal or informal and serve a range of purposes. Reliant on readings and cases, this course helps students develop a basic understanding of networks and the skill set to operate effectively within them. Primary networks of interest are those whose members come from different cultural, ethnic, organizational, and national backgrounds.
