PhD thesis: Ethnography of a Complex Network. Tools and Practices for Self-Organization in the Civil Society of Verona

With this thesis I take part in the interdisciplinary debate on the identification and promotion of models of network governance which could improve the social, environmental and economic sustainability of social-ecological systems. The originality of the research lies in the attempt to create a dialogue between languages, theories and practices of anthropology with those of social network analysis and complexity science, in analyzing an interaction network among communities of practice of the civil society. The analysis is based on a case study consisting in the collaboration network among civil society organizations of Verona and on the materials collected and produced during extended fieldwork.
