Most of the theories are based on the notion that actors’ structural power depends, at least in part, on the availability of their alternative partners, as determined by the network structure (Skvoretz and Willer 1993). The availability of alternative partners affects power use in negatively connected (or exclusive) networks by providing opportunities for powerful actors to engage in exchanges with multiple partners. In power-dependence terms, greater availability of alternative partners reduces a powerful actor’s dependence on, and frequency of exchange with, any single partner.
