Inhalt
The course is designed as a review on research design, especially the logic of causal inference. It will cover the entire research process in empirical-analytical political science research from finding a research question via placing it in the context of exiting research, formulating a theory, deriving hypotheses, operationalizing and measuring core concepts, testing hypotheses to finally interpreting results and relating them to exiting work. A special focus will be on the conditions that allow for causal inferences in different research designs, both in the tradition of causal effects and causal mechanisms.

Even though the terms are often used similarly, research design is not the same as methods. Research design covers the plan how you address your question and how you want to answer it. Methods are specific analysis tools used in carrying out this plan. The course focuses on the logic of research design, not the specific methods needed to carry out such a design. It is designed to enable students to understand and choose a research design and provides starting points for delving deeper into specific designs.

The course will combine online lecture elements with in-class discussion and interactive work that apply general lessons to specific research papers and projects.
