Coordination in Dynamic Social Networks under Heterogeneity

The project is about situations in which actors, be it individuals or organizations, try to coordinate their decisions with each other. Who tries to coordinate with whom is determined by a social network, which in turn is simultaneously formed by the actors themselves.

The project is financed through the Utrecht University 2004 High Potential grant for the project Dynamics of Cooperation, Networks, and Institutions coordinated by Vincent Buskens and Stephanie Rosenkranz.
