    Abstract: Recently a variety of link-based stability concepts have emerged in the literature on game theoretic models of social network formation. We investigate two basic formation properties that establish equivalence between some well known types of stable networks and their natural extensions. These properties can be identified as convexity conditions on the network payoff structures.

  4. By: Rodolfo Apreda
    Abstract: This paper sets forth a comprehensive viewpoint about how Public Governance should be assessed and worked-out, by making three contributions to the subject matter. Firstly, it provides the semantics by which this field of learning and practice may become operational in Political Science. Next, a four-tiered framework of analysis is laid bare, which deals with architecture, covenants and safeguards, collective action, and deviant behavior. Afterwards, and focusing on conflict systems, we give heed to the underlying logic of Public Governance, which stems from a network built up around the mechanisms of participation, contest and safeguarding.
    Keywords: governance, public governance, conflict systems, institutional safeguards
