Paper Development Workshop

The International QCA Paper Development Workshop 2019 (May 24, 2019, Antwerp Management School) provides a unique platform for early stage researchers working on papers involving QCA to meet QCA experts, get feedback on their on-going research, and learn about the latest methodological developments in QCA. The workshop is interdisciplinary and interactive and allows for in-depth discussions and individual feedback from internationally renowned QCA scholars.

We invite submission of abstracts from researchers applying QCA in various domains (e.g., management, political science, sociology, evaluation studies, international relations, medicine, and health) as well as policy and business consultants using QCA in their work.
