QCA Conference of the Americas (AQCA)

Responding to the growing interest in understanding causally complex phenomena in a configurational and comparative manner, AQCA will provide a venue for the broad, cross-disciplinary community of QCA empirical researchers and methodologists to gather together to present and receive feedback on current research projects, share theoretical and methodological developments, and discuss new directions in configurational-comparative research practices. Bringing together the diverse set of QCA empirical and methodological researchers, AQCA offers a supportive environment for the community to meet, engage in dialogue, network, learn, and collectively move forward on advancing the configurational-comparative perspective.

The second annual meeting will be held March 15-17, 2023 at the University of Southern California. Charles Ragin (UC Irvine) and Benoit Rihoux (UC Lovain) will deliver the keynote addresses.
