Johan Koskinen will present the paper “What makes an organisation: Bayesian aggregation of perceived organisational ties“ (abstract) in the CHDH journal club series. Drawing on cultural consensus theory and cognitive social structures he proposes a method for estimating ERGM to inter-organisational ties when we have no direct observations on these ties but have to rely on organisational representatives.
