Abstract:  We introduce a model of polarization in networks as a unifying setting for the measurement of polarization that covers a wide range of applications. We consider a substantially general setup for this purpose: node- and edge-weighted, undirected, and connected networks.  We generalize the axiomatic characterization of Esteban and Ray (2014) and show that only a particular instance within this class can be used justifiably to measure polarization in networks.
