The Empirical Implications of Theoretical Models Summer Institute is a training program, developed in the United States for graduate students and junior faculty, on the development and application of research designs that integrate theoretical models with empirical research with the purpose of advancing our understanding of politics. The EITM Europe is a similar program, based in Europe and created by Thomas König of the University of Mannheim, Germany.
The 2020 edition of EITM Europe will take place from June 22 until July 3 at the Collegio Carlo Alberto in Turin, Italy. It is directed by Thomas König (University of Mannheim) in collaboration with Fabio Franchino (NASP-University of Milan).
The program provides an introduction to the most recent developments in quantitative textual analysis and with a particular focus on linking applications with theory. It starts with basic concepts regarding the theoretical foundations and the statistical evaluation of theoretical models. The courses will be taught by leading scholars in four modules (plus a refresher course).
The faculty includes: James Lo (University of Southern California), Thomas Bräuninger (University of Mannheim), Kenneth Benoit (LSE) and Nicole Baerg (University of Essex). For more details, see our program.
