Models and methods in Political Science refers to the tools and techniques that scholars use to study political phenomena. Political science as a discipline employs a variety of quantitative and qualitative research methods to collect and analyze data, test hypotheses, and develop theories.

Quantitative methods include statistical analysis of survey data, time-series data, and experimental designs. Researchers using these methods strive to establish causal relationships between variables and make predictions about future events.

Qualitative methods include case studies, in-depth interviews, and ethnographic observation. Researchers using these methods aim to understand the complexities of social and political phenomena and to gain insights into how people experience and interpret political events.

Models in Political Science include mathematical models, game theoretic models, and simulations. These models are used to study political systems and institutions, to explore the behavior of individuals and groups, and to predict the outcomes of political processes.

The use of appropriate models and methods depends on the research question and the nature of the data being studied. Researchers in Political Science often use a combination of methods to address their research questions and to build a more comprehensive understanding of the political world.
