Two QUALIDEM papers were presented at the 2020 Annual Meeting of the Southern Political Science Association in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The first one, entitled ““Big Qual” as “Fundamentally” Qualitative: An abductive strategy for the longitudinal and comparative reanalysis of qualitative data” discusses how “big qualitative data” can be approached analytically with the goal of theory building. The second paper, “Democracy as an empty signifier? A qualitative (re-)appraisal of beliefs in democratic legitimacy in Western democracies”, investigates into how citizens define and understand what democracy means in different social and national contexts or period of time.
