New E-book Available on Dynamic Pattern Synthesis


A new e-book on DPS, written by Phil Haynes of University of Brighton, has been published and is downloadable.
Dynamic pattern synthesis (DPS) is a mixed method that combines the advantages of two existing case based approaches: cluster analysis and qualitative comparative analysis. Typical samples of cases used are either sets of countries or organisations. For example, DPS can be used to compare how countries progress and compare with each other on a range of interconnected indicators.
You can download the e-book by registering on the dedicated blog page.
For more information about DPS you can also take a look at the paper Professor Haynes wrote for CECAN or review the seminar he gave in Whitehall in 2017.
