On June 24-25, CRRC hosts the Methodological Conference on Research for Development in the South Caucasus: Discussing Methodological Innovations, which will provide a platform for discussing methodological approaches for studying recent political, economic and social trends in the South Caucasus, specifically focusing on innovative practices of empirical social research. It will bring together local and international participants that are committed to advance social research practice across the South Caucasus. Established scholars and practitioners from the South Caucasus, Europe and the US will present their papers, as well as conduct workshops to discuss innovative methods of policy-oriented applied social science research. The topics for discussions include migration, identity-building, politics, media and gender studies.
The conference will be accompanied by workshops on innovative methods of policy-oriented applied social science research. We also welcome proposals for workshops concerning estimation techniques, measures, samples, data, comparisons, etc. to show the usefulness of the applied social science methods for answering substantive development questions.
