Today the network has members in 32 countries in 5 continents, and covers an extensive research agenda. The members come from areas as varied as applied social sciences (including anthropologists, economists, lawyers, business administrators and sociologists), and cognitive and behavioral sciences.

For this purpose, the network divulgate papers and researchers' contact information through the network's website, conferences, workshops and the publication of academic journals. The institution has funded some research projects, and its main focus is to help and encourage research projects with practical results. besides this financial support, the network intends to provide useful information about resources available from several foundations and to help researchers to publicize their works, find co-authors and search for job positions in these areas.
