Monday 26/02/18 Patrycja Stys (London School of Economics and Political Science) “Social Network Analysis (SNA) in Research on Conflict Dynamics: Exposing Additional Ethical Challenges or Exacerbating Extant Ones?”

Social Network Analysis (SNA) is gaining popularity across the social sciences. This presentation focuses on what it is; why we do it; and how we do it. I reflect on the ethics of social network research – whether SNA poses additional ethical challenges or exposes and exacerbates those already present in other methodological approaches. I draw on personal experiences of desk and field research using SNA to study conflict dynamics in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

 Patrycja Stys is a post-doctoral researcher at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Since 2008 she has been working on post-conflict state and social reconstruction, primarely focused on the Great Lakes Region.
