>You know my methods


Do you ever sneak off to read downloaded papers on comparative methodology and concept formation, when you should be churning out empirically-based research on Central and Eastern Europe ? Go on, admit it, I bet you do. If so, you might like a look at the newly revamped website of the Committee on Concepts and Methods. Despite the slightly Orwellian name, it’s headed up by some serious and always- interesting-to-read names (John Gerring, Cas Mudde, Gerardo Munck and Andreas Schedler). More to the point, it also a small treasure trove of working papers including one on conceptualization of patronage by Petr Kopecký as well as pieces on mixed methods, path dependency and other favourite themes.
