Workshop on Empirical Methods – Swiss Political Science Association Annual Convention 2014, University of Berne

The advent of “Big Data” has, in the meantime, opened up vast amounts information with an inherent network structure (social media, mapping of web pages, etc), which complement the more traditional approaches of gathering network data through interviews, questionnaires, and document analysis.

The workshop thus welcomes papers that apply such new methods for gathering and analysing political network data (e.g. using exponential random graph or stochastic actor-oriented models), explore the limits of commonly used methods, develop models of strategic interaction within and formation of political networks formally and/or test such models empirically.
