Workshop on methods was organized and held at the Department of International Relations and European Studies, as well as Department of Political Sciences at the beginning of the Fall semester.
Students were introduced to a linear regression framework using R software. Introductory courses were taught by Zuzana Ringlerová and Lukáš Lehotský. Follow-up advanced course ensued. It covered assumptions of the linear regression as well as its robust techniques. The advanced course was delivered by Constantin Manuel Bosancianu from the Central European University, who teaches also at the methodological school of the European Consortium for Political Research.
The methodological series continues with a workshop on computer-assisted content analysis and a seminar modeled by the ECPR Joint Sessions.
