NASP-CCA Days - 4-5 June 2020

On line workshop

4 June 2020, h. 14.00-17.20
5 June 2020, h. 10.00-13.05
Zoom classroom

The workshop is jointly organized by the Ph.D. programs in Economic Sociology and Labour Studies (ESLS) and Political Studies (POLS), together with the Collegio Carlo Alberto. Its aim is twofold. On the one hand, it offers NASP students an opportunity of training on the frontier of methods in social and political sciences. Starting from their recent works, the Collegio Carlo Alberto's scholars will present students with some of these methods, including experimental and quasi-experimental approaches, process tracing, hidden population estimation, content analysis, observational data analysis with multi-level models.
On the other hand, the workshop is also an opportunity to introduce NASP students and the members of the Collegio to each other, with the aim of deepening the scientific collaboration between the Collegio and NASP doctorates. For this purpose, six students (3 from Esls and 3 from Pols) will present their research projects, while other students attending the workshop will send an abstract of their project, which will be circulated among participants.
