ECPR Seasoned Scholar Workshop: Multi-Method Designs, Case-Oriented and Comparative Methods
February 13, 2020 - February 15, 2020
This Workshop is tailored for scholars with significant research experience beyond their PhD, and organised on a flexible basis to meet specific needs — typically in connection with an ongoing research project they are managing (e.g. troubleshooting, arbitrating between methodological options, fine-tuning some designs, etc. It covers a broad range of case-oriented methods and designs (single case studies, process tracing, ‘thick’ binary comparisons, etc…), comparative methods and designs (small-N comparisons, intermediate-N comparison across multiple cases, Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) and neighbouring methods, typology-building, etc.), and ‘mixed’/multi-methods designs combining qualitative, comparative and/or quantitative methods.
