At ECPR, we recognise that time is scarce for seasoned scholars like you.
That's why we've developed two very special workshops to deliver tailored advice from senior methodologists in a time-efficient formula.
These parallel workshops, in quantitative and qualitative techniques, take place during the 2017 ECPR Summer Methods School at Central European University, Budapest. 
Designed to meet the needs of experienced academics, you should sign up for these workshops only if you have signficant research experience beyond your PhD.
Both courses take place from Thursday 27 – Saturday 29 July, running for 15 hours over three days. We will accept a maximum of nine participants; first come, first served.
The quantitative workshop is led by CEU's Tamás Rudas; the qualitative workshop by Benoît Rihoux, Université catholique de Louvain.
Quantitative workshop
Covers a wide range of statistical and formal methods. This may include aspects of survey and experimental design, quality control, missing data, methods of causal analysis, graphical modelling (aka Bayesian networks), and methods for the detection and analysis of higher dimensional interactions. Find out more
Qualitative workshop
Covers a broad span of qualitative methods and techniques, discussing constructivist, interpretive and ethnographic approaches as well as more realist
and post-positivist approaches to single case studies, small-N and medium-N comparisons. Find out more
