This seminar course introduces students to field experiments as a tool to shed light on important questions in the field of comparative politics. Each
session, students will learn about an aspect of experimental design with an emphasis on challenges that can arise when taking experimental designs to the field. The course will draw on cutting-edge experimental work on the comparative politics of developing countries to illustrate these concepts. Every
week, students will critically engage with the research design and findings of experimental papers on a particular substantive topic. The goal of the
course is to enable students to design their own experiments and practically implement them in the field.
