In recent years the process tracing method has become increasingly popular in case studies as well as in political science and political economy methodological debates. It is a method for studying causal mechanisms linking causes with outcomes. This enables the researcher to make strong inferences about how a cause (or set of causes) contributes to producing an outcome.

Professor Beach will provide an introduction to using this method and explain why it is fast becoming a popular tool to study complex phenomenon such as policy processes.
