Announcing the 17th SCANCOR PhD Workshop on Institutional Analysis hosted by University of Mannheim

August 25 - Friday, August 30, 2019

At the 17th SCANCOR PhD workshop on Institutional Analysis international faculty will present current research, review recent papers, and discuss new methodological tools that deepen the institutional agenda. Special attention is given to institutional emergence, persistence, and transformation and the contribution of institutional analysis to understand current social, ecological, and economic challenges. We also emphasize methods of comparative, archival, network and visual analysis. Finally, we tackle issues involving contestation and strife around institutions and organizations.

Students will take away new insights and measures, and a deeper understanding of how to match conceptual questions with research methods. The workshop will prepare PhD students to carry out their own individual research using the methods of institutional analysis.
