The object of this workshop is to give participants a comprehensive understanding of comparative methods, illustrated through the extant literature from comparative politics. Participants learn the logic of comparative inquiry and comparative research methods, including quantitative variable-oriented comparisons, quantitative and qualitative case-oriented comparisons, and ideographic single case-studies, the discussion of which focuses on larger questions of explanation and understanding in social and political science.
This methodological framework is applied to classic topics in comparative politics and international relations, including economic development and democracy, political violence and revolution, social movements, institutional design and democratic performance, human rights and modern slavery, and the overlap between comparative politics and international relations.
