Makro-qualitative Verfahren

  • Carsten Q. Schneider
Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Als makro-qualitativ (M-Q) können jene Transformationsstudien bezeichnet werden, die sich (a) zur Beschreibung und/oder Erklärung von Phänomenen auf der Makroebene hauptsächlich (b) qualitativer Informationen bedienen und dabei (c) Argumente in Form von mengentheoretisch basierten Aussagen treffen. M-Q-Ansätze können statisch oder dynamisch sein und werden in der Regel auf kleine bis mittlere Fallzahlen oder Einzelfallstudien angewendet. Das Spektrum mengentheoretisch basierter M-Q-Methoden umfasst neben Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) auch Verfahren wie Sequenzelaboration und process tracing (P-T).
