Qualitative Comparative Analysis for SCJ students

This workshop has been organised by the Security, Conflict and Justice Pathway (SCJ) and is open to all ESRC and non-ESRC funded PhD and MA Social Research students within the WRDTP’s seven partner universities.

This is a hands-on, crash course on the set-theoretic logic for the social sciences. This logic emphasizes causal complexity (different casual paths can lead to similar outcomes) instead of statistical correlational approaches. The course aims at enabling students to think about ways in which they could actively use this method for their dissertations. Thus, this course provides both the formal set theoretical underpinnings of QCA and the technical and research practical skills necessary for performing a QCA (both crisp and fuzzy set versions).

This training session will be delivered face-to-face at the University of Sheffield. This event will not be recorded but slides will be shared after the event.
