Hi all,

Does anyone know of examples of social network analysis (SNA) being applied within an aid agency?

I have a number of examples of SNA being used in cross-organisational multi-stakeholder processes (disaster response in Mozambique, civil society networks in Ghana, INEE etc), and work I did myself on actor-focused network analysis in SDC, but I have seen nothing which formally uses SNA in a particular agency... I am particularly interested in getting my hands on a social network visualisation.

Any tips or suggestions very warmly recieved.
