The choice of Actor-Network Theory enabled the role of intersectoriality in the intervention under study in this case to be analyzed, along with the incentive to local equity arising from expansion of this type of collaboration and vision that takes both technical staff and the population out of their 'sectorial boxes'.
This article demonstrates that actor-network theory provides a useful tool for studying agenda-setting in online networks.

Thus, the goal of this study is to identify the configuration of the networks of human and non-human actors that are formed in the process of specialized accounting inspection from the perspective of the Actor-Network Theory.

Latour discusses actors and groupings instead of nodes and networks in his actor-network theory, but his discussion of tracing boundaries of groups, how actors are "always engaged in the business of mapping the 'social context' in which they are placed" (32), and how groupings are constantly made and remade is very similar to how other network theorists, like Barabasi, discuss networks.
We draw on actor-network theory to consider the ways in which a remote professional development experience differs to one in which all participants are physically located in the same space.
Technological Advancements and the Impact of Actor-Network Theory
Neighbouring disciplines such as 'the new geography', which was more sensitive than the sociologists to postmodern reconfigurations of space and time; cultural studies, which grasped the heightened importance of the world of signs and images; actor-network theory, which rejected the antithesis of the human and the natural in favour of concepts of interaction and hybridity; environmental science; and even the political theory of the state--all often seemed to be more perceptive in their analyses of the changing world than sociology.
This essay's objective is to develop a deeper understanding of governance (its mechanisms and networks) and strategic outcomes, based upon governance network theory (Rhodes, 1997, 2007), strategic outcomes (Bulgacov, Souza, Prohmann, Coser, & Baraniuk, 2007; Matitz, 2009), strategy as practice (Golsorkhi, Rouleau, Seidl, & Vaara, 2010; Johnson, Langley, Melin, & Whittington, 2007), and Actor-Network Theory (Latour, 1994a, 1994b, 1996a, 2000, 2001, 2005; Law, 1992; Wessells, 2007).
draws together actor-network theory and its offshoot, boundary object analysis, in order to understand the relationships engendered by development policies.
