5. International QCA Paper Development Workshop

We invite submissions for abstracts to the International QCA Paper Development Workshop 2021 (ETH Zurich, 13-14 December 2021). The International QCA Paper Development Workshop 2021 provides a unique platform for researchers working on papers involving QCA to meet QCA experts, get feedback on their on-going research and learn about the latest methodological developments in QCA. The workshop is interdisciplinary and interactive and allows for in-depth discussions and individual feedback from internationally renowned QCA scholars. This year the International QCA Paper Development Workshop 2021 will take place on 13th December 2021. As this year edition will be a hybrid event, the workshop might also include 14th December. Please book both days; more information will be shared in due time.

We invite submissions from researchers that are using QCA for the first time, but are at a mid- or advanced stage in the application of QCA. This means that a dataset has already been constructed and that preliminary or advanced results are already available at the time of abstract submission. The Call for Abstracts is open to researchers working in various domains (e.g. sociology, political science, management, international relations, medicine and health, evaluation studies), as well as to policy and business consultants using QCA in their work.

Some of the scholars that will attend this year event are:
●        Barbara Befani, U Surrey
●        Bart Cambré, U Antwerp
●        Lasse Cronqvist, U Trier
●        Adrian Dușa, U Bucharest
