During their training, many political science PhD students learn a great deal about the nuts and bolts of quantitative methods. However, in qualitative methods courses, scholars tend to focus on epistemology and often spend very little time on concrete suggestions for finding materials and how exactly to interpret them. In this lecture, Joseph Torigian of American University will not only provide a list of potential sources about which every student should be aware, but also argue that qualitative research demands a certain sensibility - that of a detective. The world files its information on any topic very miscellaneously, but any one detail could be crucial, so scholars must learn to think creatively about the best way to collect as much evidence as possible. 

 

Joseph Torigian is an assistant professor at the School of International Service at American University in Washington, DC, a Stanton Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, and a Global Fellow at the Wilson Center.

Norsk narkotikapolitikk er i radikal endring. Bruk og besittelse av narkotika blir snart avkriminalisert. De såkalte «brukerorganisasjonene», som består av folk med egne erfaringer med skadelig rusbruk, spiller en stadig viktigere rolle i denne prosessen. PROMENTA-partnerne ved Institutt for sosiologi og samfunnsgeografi belyser dette, blant annet med basis i teori om såkalte «lay experts» og deres rolle i politikkutviklingen.
