|Virtual Networks A "Virtual Network" is a group of Think Tanks identified by certain semantic and normative (ideological) commonalities (e.g. climate change scepticism). Such a virtual network constitutes a research field that differs from the study of formal networks. Formal networks are real in the sense of officially acknowledged and immediately open to empirical validation. Virtual networks on the other hand display shared ideas. Social network analysis tools can be applied to find out if or to what extent virtual networks are real networks that display linkages (membership in networks, personnel, resources etc.). Unconnected think tanks in turn can be considered special cases in need of explanation independent from network structures (unless we have to assume invisible, hidden or covered ties).||Neue Rechte|

Working mode, goals
The IBD has close links to a variety of actors in Germany's new and old right. These include the AfD, ProNRW, the IfS, the Blaue Narzisse, the junge freiheit magazine, and the German Burschenschaften (student associations. It mainly organises protest activities which are meant to promote awareness of the supposed dangers of immigration to the existence of the German ethnic nation ('Grosser Austausch') and German identity. The also demand 'remigration' of illegal immigrants. In the past, members of the IBD have scaled the Brandenburg Gate and an open air piece of art in Dresden to unfold banners protesting against sale of arms, military intervention and immigration.
