Event description

Description

Research Methods Courses (RMC)

Two short Research Methods Courses (RMC) will be offered on July 21, 2018, the day preceding the 25th IPSA World Congress of Political Science in Brisbane. These courses offer state of the art information about recent advances in research methods in different fields given by renowned international instructors. They should bring together both junior and senior scholars interested in these fields and their recent developments enhancing their respective research networks.

An Introduction into Comparative Case Study Research

After completing this course, participants should have a clear picture of the strengths and limits of case study research. They will be able to go into details by own readings, and they should be able to outline sound research designs for case studies of their own. Basic knowledge of social science methodology would be helpful, but is not required for taking this course. It would be perfect if participants could come to the course with an emerging or ongoing case study project of their own, such that course teaching and own research experiences can benefit from each other.
