Regards, Mark. === ESRC AQM Studentship: Strategic and Relational Event Models in International Climate Treaty-Making Existing statistical approaches ignore the strategic and relational contexts in which specific agreements are made; they only consider a government’s current choice, independent of how their own choice affects future behaviour by others (strategic context) and what to learn from historic ratifications (relational context). This PhD project hence proposes to assess, both substantively and statistically, the relative merits of two advanced quantitative methods: Strategic Estimation and the Relational Event Model (REM) to investigate international agreement-making to better understand the nature of government choice over time. Supervisors: Patrick Bayer and Mark Tranmer. ==== Mark Tranmer Professor of Quantitative Social Science Room 1201, Adam Smith Building School of Social & Political Sciences University of Glasgow G12 8RT [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> 0141 330 3144 Follow Glasgow Quantitative Methods Group (GQMG) on twitter: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.twitter.com_G-5FQ-5FM-5FG&d=DwIGaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=Xd1ZUZdWQDibOQ2xcagerr7RL_4e0hchIn8eyybA9fk&s=l4pamf7yVRFgn92qCjl2DmdfJyvc5DRPcrTBJXNjuLo&e= [University of Glasgow: The Times Scottish University of the Year 2018] _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
