Data Wrangling and Data Management in R

Course description

Quantitative research in conflict studies is of high societal interest but still remains a challenging task. In this course, students will tackle common problems that arise during data management processes in conflict research by being introduced to R. Using standard datasets in conflict studies, students will learn how to master R and submit a first research project with R as part of their final submission. The goal of this course is to provide students with guidelines for good data management practices and visualization. To give you a good overview of important datasets, we will also present and discuss parts of the existing data basis.
