Quantitative Research in Politics

Quantitative Research in Politics

We promote and support quantitative research in all sub-fields of politics and International relations.

The aim of the Newcastle Quantitative Research in Politics group is to promote and support quantitative research in all sub-fields of politics and IR. In the context of a growing number of colleagues who use quantitative data and methods in their research, the group is a platform for discussion, feedback and collaborative research that helps consolidate the community of quantitative political researchers in the department. We further aim to encourage collaborative research focused on the use of quantitativmethods within HASS and the region. 

Our past activities included organizing hands-on methods training workshops in Social Media Data Analysis (taught by Dr. Iulia Cioroianuand Experimental Methods (taught by Dr. Florian Foos).   

The group functions in close collaboration with the Durham-Newcastle based North-East Research Development Workshop (NERD).
