We model the dynamics of the two-mode network among directors and boards of voluntary associations, using a stochastic actor-based model, SIENA [12], including the structural effects proposed in [6], and considering the political orientation of associations as a covariate. Using data from [14], we compare the evolution of interlocks among Turkish associations in two European capitals, and explain the noticeable difference in structure by looking at statistically significant differences among the estimated effects.
