This roundtable, a joint effort of the Kellogg Institute’s Measuring Democracy Working Group and the Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy, will focus on Michael Coopedge’s Democratization and Research Methods (Cambridge University Press, 2012). Coppedge will present the work and discussants will respond with critiques.

The book is a coherent survey and critique of both democratization research and the methodology of comparative politics. The two themes enhance each other: the democratization literature illustrates the advantages and disadvantages of various methodological approaches, and the critique of methods makes sense of the vast and bewildering democratization field.
