Seminar Title. EXPERIMENTAL AND QUASI-EXPERIMENTAL METHODS FOR POLITICAL SCIENCES. Biases in information processing. Evidence from the laboratory and the field
Abstract. The seminar aims to give an introduction to the experimental approach in political sciences. Inspired by experimental psychology on the one hand, and experimental economics, on the other hand, experimental research has gained in popularity in politics during the last decennium. I will introduce experimental research and its logics with some examples that will be discussed extensively in class. The seminar includes a dicussion on the use of incentives, the extent of control attainable in experiments, and sources of noise and biases that can appear in experimental research.
