Inhoud vak

On the basis of a collective thematic focus the workshop aims to train
students in doing political science themselves within the field of
International Relations and Transnational Governance. This course starts
by critically examining; - as a class, and in small groups; - some key
issues – on the basis of selected readings – within the overarching
theme , thus seeking to acquire in depth knowledge and understanding of
existing research in this area, and then, in the final weeks, proceeds
by applying that knowledge by designing and carrying out small research
projects. This way, substantive knowledge is deepened while at the same
time the focus is on training students `on the spot'; further developing
students' (research) skills and competences within the setting of a
research practical. The main aim of the workshop is thus to train
students in the practice of political science research, familiarizing
students with the different meta- theoretical and methodological issues
and problems involved, such as: research design; choice of research
methods; data collection and empirical analysis; causality, inference
and interpretation.
