Chapter 34: Case study analysis
Restricted access

Case study research is one of the most utilized approaches in political science. Research on the approach has seen a significant improvement in the past few years, moving it from the status of a purely idiographic and single-measure approach to one that is both theoretically driven as well as situated with the context of a larger population. In this chapter, I aim to provide a practical guide to designing a case study, while explicitly avoiding getting into the weeds of the debates over case studies. The chapter also aims to approach case studies with a wider scope that does not assume that case studies have a rigid or mutually exclusive affinity with one methodological tradition.
