The workshop deals with the dimension of cases and case selection in Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) from different angles. We begin with a discussion of what a case is on a general level and in a specific empirical study. Furthermore, we detail the importance and practice of delineating the population of cases in QCA.
