ReSPoS Summer School 2013

Summer School RESEARCH STRATEGIES IN POLICY STUDIES 2013

 

 

Summer School
Research Strategies in Policy Studies (ResPoS)
Turin, June 5-7 • Milan, June 17-19 2013

In scientific inquiry, when accounting for some relevant phenomena, it is the way evidences are collected and organized that decides whether hypotheses and theories can be held true. The point is especially relevant in policy studies, where the results of analyses often base prescriptions to policy-makers.

This Summer School offers students and young analysts an overview of research strategies relevant to policy studies, with the aim of strengthening their analytic tool-box while increasing their awareness of differences in causal assumptions and designs.
