NGO Network Analysis Handbook

Today, there is the UN NGO Network, NGO Global Network, International NGO Network, Voluntary Action Network and many other type of sectoral networks such as the Child Rights Network, Human Rights Network, and Environmental Protection Network.

However, more often than not, the term "network" is used as a metaphor and rarely is there much effort to actually measure and demonstrate if there is truly a network; that is, an interconnected group or system.

Since January 2011, I worked with Lilly Saganelidze and Tamuna Dagargulia to study, measure and map the network of youth-focused NGOs in western Georgia. The outcome of this study is: NGO Network Analysis Handbook: how to measure and map linkages between NGOs.

Please feel free to use download and use this handbook and please send us an email if you have suggestions in how to improve it.

  1. Hi Larry, I like this network analysis a lot. Have you ever used the same methodology to explore social capital linkages between individuals, especially in conflict contexts? Please email me at to discuss further.
