Contents: The aim of this course is to provide students with a set of methodological tools that enable the use of case study methods in your own research. A constant theme throughout the course will be on debating the strengths and limitations of different small-n methods, illustrating the types and scopes of inferences that are possible, and whether and how they can be nested into mixed-methods research designs, focusing on how these issues play out in the context of your own research.
