Abstract

Instructor: Wouter Wolfs Date: Tuesday 13 August No pre-registration required – just drop in on the day. Process tracing is a valuable tool in the qualitative researcher's toolbox, particularly suitable in the study of causal mechanisms, i.e. how a trigger leads to a specific outcome, and allows us to open up the ‘black box’ of causality. This taster presents a virtual course on the rationale and application of process tracing methodology. The instructor will present a 30-minute lecture on their course topic, followed by a 15-minute Q&A session. This will allow you to get a clearer picture of the methodology, its fundamental principles, course objectives, and the tools you'll explore.
