MethodsNET Summer School on Process Tracing Methods

June 19-30, 2023, Derek Beach and I offer a PhD-level course on Process Tracing Methods as part of the 2nd @MethodsNET Summer School. Registration is now open, but what will we do?

Part of the Summer School in Social Research Methods (3SRM full program), this course is designed for those interested in qualitative case studies and studying “causal mechanisms”. Over the course of two weeks, we will discuss what causal mechanisms are, how they advance our understanding of (social) phenomena, how mechanisms can be traced, and what conclusions can be drawn on the basis of a PT.

The course takes a hands-on approach and encourages participants to apply theoretical insights to their own research projects. It provides all the basic skills to set-up and follow-through an independent PT-study.

Venue: Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
Course dates: 19-30 June, 2023
Early bird (PhD)student fee: €1075 (until 01.04)
Application deadline: 1 May 2023
