#GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies: Global Approach to CAS Series I: Economic Statecraft in the Middle East: Conceptualization and #CaseStudies (11.06.2002)

Target audience
Doctoral Students and Postdoctoral Researchers at GIGA and Partner Institutions

About the course
Compared to its share of the world’s population the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) accounts for percentages of global combat deaths, terrorist attacks, and refugees five to 11 times over. The underlying conflicts have economic aspects, too. The region has seen a large array of international and intra-regional sanctions and blockades. State funds and geo-economic strategies have been used to strengthen the resilience of authoritarian states. The MENA’s endowment with oil rents and strategic location along trade routes has engendered particular development models. The region’s states have seen their autonomy in economic decision-making challenged by compromised sovereignty in areas of limited statehood, where (violent) non-state actors command extractive capacities in a certain territory or economic sector. The respective states, in turn, integrate economic strategies in counterinsurgencies and efforts to re-assert control. Economic warfare is rampant in the MENA yet contextual knowledge of how it affects the political economies of its states, their international relations, and the socio-political coalitions that carry them is often missing, not based on local sources and perceptions, and insufficiently theorized.

This 2-hour lecture uses the UN embargo against Iraq (1990-2003) as a case study and discusses how Comparative Area Studies (CAS) can provide necessary correctives to the narratives of large n-studies that focus on sending countries and their sanction instruments.

This course will be offered online.

About the lecturer
Eckart Woertz is the Director of the GIGA Institute for Middle East Studies.

#GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies: #CaseStudies, #ProcessTracing and #ComparativeAnalysis (04.-05.06.2020)

Target audience
Doctoral Students and Postdoctoral Researchers at GIGA and Partner Institutions

About the course
Case studies are the backbone of social science. At the same time, we need a stronger and more rigorous methodological backbone to case study research to maintain the leverage that knowledge from this within-case and cross-case methods can generate. In this two day workshop, we begin by looking at the case as a unit of analysis asking “of what is this a case?” (Lund 2014) before addressing specific methodologies of process tracing and comparative approaches. In particular, we will address different approaches to comparison, both variable-oriented and messier case-oriented comparisons, as well as area-based and across-area comparisons, to address the logic and value of comparing in the political and international analysis.

The workshop will, for the most part, consist of a mixture of lectures and practical interactive exercises. We will also make space for students to present briefly their projects in development as they pertain to the methods of the workshop.

This course will be offered online.

About the lecturer
Eleanor Knott is an Assistant Professor in Qualitative Methodology in the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics.

VHB-Pro-Dok: DESIGN SCIENCE in St. Gallen (25.-28.05.2020)

Seit mehreren Jahren bieten Professor Jan  vom Brocke (Universität Liechtenstein) und Professor Robert Winter (Universität St. Gallen) den beliebten Kurs „Design Science” an. In diesem Jahr wird der Kurs vom 25. bis 28 Mai 2020 in St. Gallen stattfinden.

Kursinhalte:
Design Science Research (DSR) is a promising research paradigm that intends to generate knowledge on the design of innovative solutions to real-world problems. As such, DSR is specifically useful incontributing to the solution of societally and practically relevant challenges. At the same time, matured methodological foundations are available today, specifically supporting publishing DSR research both at conferences and top-tier journals.

This course gives an introduction to Design Science Research (DSR). It focuses on planning and conducting design science research on Ph.D. level. It is intended to provide state-of-the art methodological competences for all Ph.D. students in business whose research is not solely  descriptive/explanatory, but also comprises components where artefacts are purposefully designed and evaluated.

While Design Science Research is very common in Information Systems research, purposeful artefact design and evaluation are found in many other business research fields like, e.g., General Management, Operations Management/Management Science, Accounting/Controlling, Business Education, or Marketing. Although Design Science is often conducted implicitly, the methodological discourse in the Information Systems has led to a high level of reflection and to the availability of a large number of reference publications and cases, so that examples and cases will often originate from this domain. It should however be noted that Design Science as a paradigm is applicable and is used in nearly all fields of business research. As a consequence, this class is not only part of the Information Systems ProDok curriculum, but intentionally being positioned as cross-domain class.

The goal of the course is to provide Ph.D. students with insights and capabilities that enable them to plan and conduct independent Design Science research. To achieve this goal, students will engage in a number of activities in preparation and during this four-day course, including preparatory readings, lectures, presentations, project work, and in-class discussions. The course format offers an interactive learning experience and the unique opportunity to obtain individualized feedback from leading IS researchers as well as develop preliminary research designs for their own Ph.D. projects.

VHB-Pro-Dok: APPLIED REGRESSION ANALYSIS in Berlin (12.-15.05.2020)

Vom 12. bis 15. Mai 2020 findet wie jedes Jahr der sehr erfolgreiche VHB-ProDok Kurs „Applied Regression Analysis” in Berlin statt.  Durchgeführt wird der Kurs von Professor Georg von Graevenitz (Queen Mary University of London) und Professor Stefan Wagner (ESMT Berlin).

Kursinhalte:
This course will provide participants who have basic skills in statistics and econometrics with an introduction to current core methods used in the analysis of observational, experimental and quasi-experimental data. The methods covered are widely used in  economics and increasingly also required for good publications in top management journals. The aim is to cover theory and selected applications, but more importantly to introduce participants to the use of statistical  software that will allow them to apply the methods discussed in the course to data.

This course covers important methods used in the multivariate  analysis of data. The course revisits basic concepts of the linear regression model and its properties and covers selected advanced topics such as the analysis of duration data and (quasi) experimental designs as well as methods to deal with the problems of endogeneity and sample selection. The theoretical basis of these methods is discussed but the focus of the course is on the application of the methods to data sets. Applications will be studied with the help of data provided by the lecturers and with reference to recent publications.

After the course, participants will…

  • have a basic understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of multiple regression models.
  • be able to apply regression methods to the investigation of economic relationships and processes.
  • understand the econometric methods, approaches, ideas, results and conclusions met in the majority of economic books and articles.
  • be aware of common pitfalls and mistakes to avoid when conducting regression analysis.
  • be able to use the software program STATA to carry out empirical analysis based on regression analysis
