Configurational Comparative Methods (CCM) are increasingly in social science research. The workshop will introduce to these methods mainly on focusing on Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA). We will first introduce the conceptional basics of QCA and then looking at different refinements. Various applications of CCM will be studied and the software used for QCA will be introduced. Finally, current developments in CCM research are briefly presented.

The software introduced in this course is only available for Windows OS:
