Can network analysis help African policies?

Our latest working paper written with Simon Renk of the World Food Program discusses how network analysis can be used as a policy and empowerment tool by development and humanitarian organizations. Focusing on West Africa, we are particularly interested in the application of network analysis to the fields of food security, market analysis and gender, three policy areas that, despite being fundamentally relational by nature, have received little attention from network science so far.
