Annual Theme: Research Design is Not Enough

Research Design is Not Enough is this year's theme and will be showcased through an outstanding speaker series, a workshop on structural estimation and a conference on the Role of Theory in Causal Identification. Our annual theme considers the role of theory development and application in empirical research in the social sciences intended to support causal claims. Though social science seeks to understand the causes of important social phenomena, understanding requires both theoretical explanation as well as empirical evidence bearing on causal claims.
