AS Sponsored Workshop, October 8-9, 2020 DZHW Hannover. Organizers: Sebastian Lang, Ulrike Schwabe, Monika Jungbauer-Gans (DZHW).   The workshop aims to discuss and reflect up-to-date developments in research and open questions on causality from an interdisciplinary perspective. 1) It deepens the understanding of causality in the social sciences on a theoretical-analytical level; 2) It highlights research designs and statistical methods to support causal interpretation on an applied empirical level; (3) It provides a place to discuss results of replication studies directly confronting naïve and more sophisticated estimation strategies. Core questions to be addressed are related to the general relation between description and explanation, the counterfactual approach itself, adequate estimation strategies for causal
inference, advantages and disadvantages of experimental and observational data. The workshop is also open to other aspects related to causality and causal inference. Download CfP here (submission deadline: May 31, 2020). More information to be found here.
