Empirical Implication of Theoretical Models Summer Institute 2018, 23 June – 7 July

(Mixed) Methods for the study of conflict and cooperation are receiving increasing scholarly attention in the social sciences promising learning from both qualitative and quantitative tools of analysis. Mixed Methods allow researchers to draw inferences from combinations of correlational analysis with process tracing (Humphreys and Jacobs 2015). However, applying mixed methods may have important implications for research design, for example the varieties of mixing and the selection of cases and contexts.

This summer institute offers scholarly insights into the most recent developments on (mixed) methods approaches, including statistics, theories and applications taught by leading scholars in four modules (plus a refresher course) from 23 June until 7 July 2018 at the Collegio Carlo Alberto in Turin (http://www.carloalberto.org/collegio/about-us/). EITM Europe 2018 is directed by Thomas König (University of Mannheim) in collaboration with Fabio Franchino (University of Milan).

The tuition for the whole summer institute from 23 June until 7 July is 1000 Euros (£900). If participants want to join only a shorter period, the tuition is 300 Euros (£250) per module.

Detailed information for each course can be found here.
