LLAKES Research Seminar - Method Matters: Social Science, Human Rights and Phronesis
14 February 2013
Date: Thursday 7 March, 3.00 to 4.30 pm
Location: Room 728, Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way, London WC1H OAL
Speaker: Professor Todd Landman
About Seminar: This seminar focuses on the challenge of conducting value-based social scientific work that remains methodologically rigorous. It provides an overview of a growing challenge to social scientific research for its over reliance on natural science modes of inquiry; and advances the idea of ‘phronetic social science’, which recaptures Aristotle’s notion of practical wisdom through expert knowledge. Professor Landman will show how his own work has brought systematic analysis to bear on significant problems relating to human rights. His examples come both from his academic research on human rights, as well as from over fifteen years of engagement as an international consultant on human rights for major inter-governmental, governmental, and non-governmental organisations.
About the Speaker: Todd Landman is Professor of Government and Director of the Institute for Democracy and Conflict Resolution at the University of Essex. He is author of Human Rights and Democracy: the Precarious Triumph of Ideals; Protecting Human Rights; Studying Human Rights; and Issues and Methods in Comparative Politics. As a political methodologist, Professor Landman has carried out a large number of international consultancies over the last 15 years in the areas of development, democracy and human rights with an emphasis on quantitative methods and analysis. In particular, he has worked for the UNDP in Mongolia as part of its work on democratic governance assessment and the development of Democratic Governance Indicators.
