Description

This workshop brings together scholars from a diverse range of subfields within politics and international relations to discuss the methodology of mixed methods research.

What are the different ways of mixing methods both across and within the quantitative and qualitative traditions? Can mixed methods overcome various well-known threats to the validity of causal inference? How can diverse forms of evidence best be integrated in practice? And, in theory, what is the best epistemological framework in which to understand the logic of mixed methods research?

Please email enquiries to Samantha Peel.


This event is hosted by the ERC-funded project ‘Qualitative and Quantitative Social Science: A Unified Logic of Causal Inference?’. QUALITY is funded by the European Research Council under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (ERC grant agreement no. 715530)
