Burt, R S, Zhang, E Y, Bai, X, Cao, J, Mohliver, A, Gerges Yammine, R, Gomez-Solorzano, M D, Hu, X, Iorio, A, Liu, W, Malhotra, N, Soda, G, Ter Wal, A L J and Yu, S (2023) The Micro Dynamics of Social Network: Formation, Evolution, and Consequences. Academy of Management Proceedings, 2023 (1). ISSN 2151-6561


This symposium aims to investigate the connection between micro-level processes and macro-level phenomena in social networks. It will specifically focus on understanding the individual factors that contribute to the formation of social connections, the influence of formal organizational structures on social interactions, and how individuals and organizations can or cannot gain from being part of a network. The symposium also aims to explore new ways of understanding social network mechanisms. To gain a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and potential solutions to causality in social network analysis, the symposium will feature four papers, three of which use a mixed-method approach and one of which uses a qualitative, inductive study.
