Project update: almost two years after the FAMAC project was officially launched in Stavanger (fall 2016) the researchers involved have completed the data collection and are now focusing on the analysis of the empirical material that was gathered in the past months.
Oleksandr Ryndyk and Pieter Bevelander are currently working on the analysis of the quantitative data that was collected during spring 2017 in a web survey (around 5000 respondents). Gunhild Odden, Kathy Burell, Hugrun Osk Gudjonsdottir and Mateus Schweyher are on their side working with the qualitative data. In an effort to bring qualitative and quantitative research into conversation all researchers will also work together
Exiting months of dissemination work lay ahead of us, during which we will present our findings at various seminars and conferences. In June, Gunhild, Mateus and Oleksandr presented some of their findings in an internal research seminar that took place in Krakow, Poland. In July, Mateus, Oleksandr and Pieter will be present at the IMISCOE conference in Barcelona, Spain. Finally, in July Oleksandr will also participate in the IPSA World Congress of Political Science in Brisbane, Australia.
