Pre-Conference Workshop on Coincidence Analysis (12th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination & Implementation in Health)

December 4, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Crystal Gateway Marriott (Arlington, VA), 1700 Jefferson Davis Hwy
Arlington, Virginia 22202
+ Google Map
Free with conference registration

This workshop will introduce Coincidence Analysis (CNA), a relatively new member within the family of Configurational Comparative Methods.  CNA is specifically designed to analyze causal complexity, which is common in implementation research. Presenters will discuss the types of studies for which CNA is useful, provide worked examples of applying CNA to datasets, and share practical resources for using CNA.  Participants will learn how CNA works through hands-on exercises involving Boolean algebra, the bottom-up algorithm used by CNA and model performance…

7th International QCA Expert Workshop

December 10, 2019 - December 11, 2019
ETH Zürich, Rämistrasse 101
Zurich, Switzerland
+ Google Map
Free

The 7th International QCA Expert Workshop provides a venue for experienced QCA researchers to discuss the latest and most important developments around QCA. The workshop focuses exclusively on methodological and conceptual advances around QCA, not on applications of QCA in empirical research. We expect all participants to actively participate in the program. In order to allow for active participation among researchers with diverse academic backgrounds, the number of participants is limited. If you’re working on a project which you think…

International Winter School on Public Policy – Alps Edition 2020: Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA)

January 6 - January 10
Aussois Savoie, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes France + Google Map
400€ – 825€

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…

ECPR Seasoned Scholar Workshop: Multi-Method Designs, Case-Oriented and Comparative Methods

February 13 - February 15
University of Bamberg, Kapuzinerstraße 16
Bamberg, D-96047 Germany
+ Google Map

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…

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

February 14 - February 15
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 - February 21
University of Bamberg, Kapuzinerstraße 16
Bamberg, D-96047 Germany
+ Google Map

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…

ECPR Methods School: Advanced Topics in Set-Theoretic Methods and QCA

February 17 - February 21
University of Bamberg, Kapuzinerstraße 16
Bamberg, D-96047 Germany
+ Google Map

This course addresses advanced issues that arise if and when scholars embrace notions of sets and their relations. While it is a course about set-theoretic methods writ large, most of the time, we will discuss issues specific to QCA. We will try and address all the following topics but, depending on participants' needs and interests, we can put more emphasis on some: set-theoretic multi-method research; robustness and sensitivity; set-theoretic theory evaluation; enhanced Standard Analysis;   data structures and set-theoretic methods, including…

Southern California QCA Workshop – CANCELED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS

March 26 - March 28
University of California, Irvine
$175 – $375

The goal of this workshop is to provide a ground-up introduction to Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) and fuzzy sets. Participants will get intensive instruction and hands-on experience with the fsQCA software package and on completion should be prepared to design and execute research projects using the set-analytic approach. Update: The workshop has been canceled due to the Coronavirus pandemic

Qualitative Comparative Analysis

June 1 - June 3
Online
$1400 – $2700

Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) is a method that has become part of the toolbox in disciplines such as political science, sociology, public administration and organization and management studies. QCA can be used to answer any research question if one is interested in analyzing patterns of necessity and sufficiency in a group of cases, ranging from a handful to many thousands. This course introduces participants to the principles and techniques of Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) on a methodological and an applied…
