Project title: The Link between Cooperation and Social Networks. Exclusion or Stimulation of Defectors?

Description: Scholars identified two fundamental ways that link networks to cooperation: mutual selection of cooperative actors, and influence from cooperators on defectors. This project moves beyond existing research in two ways: 1) it integrates selection and influence processes in a dynamic perspective, and 2) it tests how both processes are modified by individual social value orientation (SVO). We aim to demonstrate by a triangulation of methods how understanding the interplay of networks and cooperation with SVO is crucial for interventions that successfully promote cooperation.
