Case selection is one of the most important steps in comparative research design, as systematic, theoretically grounded case selection produces stronger research.
This course will discuss practical strategies for which and how many cases to use in your research project.
The instructor will draw on her experience producing two books and several articles, all of which used the comparative method and case studies, to provide examples of how to go about case selection in practice.
This course will be offered online.
