The PLATO PhD course 'Methods in the Study of Legitimacy Crisis' will be held at Robinson College, University of Cambridge on 10-12 September 2018.
The participants will have the opportunity to discuss questions raised in their individual PhD projects with experts in the most relevant methods: Derek Beach (process tracing), Virginie Van Ingelgom (focus groups), Hans-Jörg Trenz (media content analysis) and Joachim Blatter (case study methods).
The course will be part of the third PhD school offered as part of the MSCA-ITN PLATO project (The Post-Crisis Legitimacy of the European Union). For the 15 PLATO PhD researchers, this PhD course in methods is mandatory.
The course is open to a limited number of external PhD candidates, and places will be given on a first-come-first-served basis. Interested participants can contact PLATO project manager Marit Eldholm.
