(PhD) Advanced Introduction to Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) 
Wintersemester 2020/21
Professur für Policy Analysis (Prof. Wurster)
Zuordnungen: 1 
Angaben zur Abhaltung
Qualitative research approaches have experienced major innovations over the last two decades with Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) being among the most prominent advancements (Goertz & Mahoney 2012; Ragin 2000, 2008; Schneider & Wagemann 2012). Drawing upon set-theory and configurational thinking, QCA enables the analysis of social phenomena in terms of set relations; it is especially suited to detect patterns which are conjunctural, equifinal, and asymmetric. As an approach, QCA can be seen as an analytic instrument to conduct cross-case analysis while keeping a strong focus on the underlying cases. It therefore lends itself nicely to being used in conjunction with different types of within-case analysis.
This workshop, offered as part of the discipline-specific and -related advanced training (fachliche und fachnahe Qualifizierung) for doctoral candidates of the TUM School of Governance, provides a comprehensive introduction to QCA. It focuses on both the theoretical underpinnings of QCA as a case-based approach to comparative social science and gives an application-oriented introduction to how to run state-of-the-art QCA in RStudio. In a nutshell, the workshop will mainly cover the following topics:
1. Basics: QCA as a set-theoretic approach to study social phenomena
2. Analysis: How to run QCA in theory and practice
3. Multimethod research: how to combine QCA and case studies
4. Discussion: QCA’s strengths and weaknesses
