ECPR Methods School: Foundations of set-theoretic and case-oriented methods

February 14, 2020 - February 15, 2020
University of Bamberg, Kapuzinerstraße 16
Bamberg, D-96047 Germany
+ Google Map

This course introduces participants to the logic and foundations of case-oriented and set-theoretic methods. We discuss perspectives on causality, case-orientation in empirical social research, and the main features of set-theoretic methods. We will reflect about different types of research questions, evidence and observations, causal complexity, causal effects, causal mechanisms, and context. The course then covers basics of set theory, measurement and set calibration, logical operations, and the logic of necessary and sufficient conditions as set relations. We will apply these…

ECPR Methods School: Introduction to Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA)

February 17, 2020 - February 21, 2020
University of Bamberg, Kapuzinerstraße 16
Bamberg, D-96047 Germany

This course introduces participants to crisp set and fuzzy set Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) and its analysis in R. It provides participants with a basic understanding of the analytic underpinnings and steps of QCA, and enables them to independently perform a basic crisp or fuzzy set QCA (Standard Analysis). We will look at the origins, analytic aims, and variants of QCA, and deal in depth with techniques and practices of set calibration. The nuts and bolts the QCA technique, from…

International Winter School on Public Policy – Alps Edition 2020

June 6, 2020 - June 10, 2020
Centre Paul Langevin, 24 rue du Coin
Aussois, 73500 France

€400 – €650

Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) is a set-theoretic method for identifying necessary and/or sufficient conditions for outcomes which is increasingly used in comparative policy analysis. Its core advantages lie in modelling causal complexity and enabling systematic comparisons to identify regularities, while integrating case knowledge at all levels of analysis. This course introduces participants to the nuts and bolts of QCA and its implementation using the most powerful currently available software in R. Apart from basic knowledge of empirical social research design…
