John Ziker published a chapter, co-authored with Boise State anthropology second-degree student Karen S. Fulk, in an edited volume titled “Collaborative Innovation Networks: Building Adaptive and Resilient Organizations,” published by Springer Nature.
This unique book reveals how Collaborative Innovation Networks (COINs) can be used to achieve resilience to change and external shocks. The book is in the Springer series, Studies on Entrepreneurship, Structural Change and Industrial Dynamics. The chapter examines the role of food sharing networks in providing resilience to indigenous communities in Siberia in the unpredictable post-socialist transitional economy.
Ziker presented this work at a conference, Asia in the Russian Imagination, held at University of Utah’s Asia Center March 23-24. Ziker also served on the advisory committee for the conference.
