Gary Goertz, Professor at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame, is visiting Warwick on 13 March, 2019. Prof. Goertz is a highly influential scholar on issues of conceptual development, causal mechanisms and multi-methods research. Professor Goertz will present work from his forthcoming, completely revised book, Social Science Concepts: A User’s Guide.
