Quantitative Social Science: Variation, Empirical Regularities, and explanation
 
The lecture sets out the case for quantitative social science in its ability to map and measure variation in the social world, recognise and understand the regularities in that world through systematic analysis, and how models of explanation and empirical generalisation are made possible. In a funding era that is increasingly being framed as challenge-led and impact focussed, the lecture will argue that quantitative social science has much to offer to a wide range of stakeholders seeking to make the world a better place. The talk moves from a general statement about quantitative social science to empirical examples drawn from over thirty years of research and knowledge exchange on development, democracy, and human rights.
