Enhanced communication has allowed for the growth of “networks” of organizations. Networks are groups of individuals organized around a common cause. They are different from NGOs in that they do not always have a formal hierarchy or legal status. They may not have any centralization at all.
Some scholars have suggested that, in the future, citizens might identify with a network more than with their state/nationality. Do you think this is happening or likely to happen? To support your answer, mention at least three specific examples networks. They can be civil or uncivil. Be sure to read and reference the articles by Arquilla and Weimann for full credit. To avoid any confusion about the definition of “network,” please be sure to review the Lesson for the week.
