1st Annual IPSA Summer School on Concepts, Methods and Techniques in Political Science
June 6-17, 2016
After its successful presentation in several countries around the world, the IPSA Summer School on Concepts, Methods and Techniques in Political Science was held for the first time in FLACSO (Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales), México from June 6 to 17, 2016.
The school offered cutting-edge, advanced training in qualitative and quantitative social science methods under highly experienced international faculty from the U.S. and Europe, and it provided 65 participants with rigorous training in state-of-the-art research methods.
Spanning a period of two weeks, the IPSA-FLACSO México Summer School 2016 gave scholars as well as masters and PhD students in México and other Latin American countries a unique opportunity to expand their knowledge of social science research methods, discuss research interests, network, and participate in an evening lecture series. The evening lectures saw each of the instructors discuss their research, and Mexican academics led the discussions concerning substantive and methodological implications. FLACSO México also offered a math refresher course at no extra cost to participants intent on acquiring the minimum level required for each of the six courses offered.
