Rutten, R. (Forthcoming). Uncertainty, possibility and causal power in QCA, accepted for publication in Sociological Methods & Research.

This paper uses critical-realist philosophy of science to explain the theory behind Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA). The paper suggests QCA’s truth table as a tool to ‘model’ possibilistic uncertainty. It is very critical of ‘empiricist’ QCA, which infers causality from the robustness of set relationships.

Rutten, R. (2020). Comparing causal logics: A configurational analysis of proximities using simulated data, Zeitschrift für Wirtschafstgeographie, published online, pp. 1-15.

In this paper, I compare the variable-based and the case-based causal logic and explain how they have very different implications for theorizing and empirically researching causality. I illustrate the differences with a QCA study on proximity and innovation using simulated data. The paper is part of a special issue on ‘Building better methods’, edited by Haral Bathelt and Pingfei Li.

Rutten, R. (2020). Applying and assessing large-N QCA: Robustness and causality from a critical-realist perspective, Sociological Methods & Research, published online, pp. 1-33

This methodological paper develops a tool to visualize and interpret robustness test findings for large-N QCA studies. The tool is designed to align large-N QCA with the substantive interpretation logic of small-N QCA and to prevent large-N QCA from collapsing into a regularity method.

Rutten, R. (2019). Openness values and regional innovation: A set analysis, Journal of Economic Geography, Vol. 19(6): 1211-1232.

This empirical paper inaugurated QCA (Qualitative Comparative Analysis) in economic geography. The paper evidences that openness values play a central role in regional innovation. The paper identifies four different mechanisms that explain why regions are innovative and finds that openness values are part of three of the mechanisms.

Rutten, R. (2019). Critical realism and complex causality: On the assumptions you buy in to when you are making causal claims, Oisterwijk: Wolf Publishers.

I wrote this essay to prepare myself for a public lecture to celebrate my 25th work anniversary at Tilburg University. The essay presents my take on critical realism and complex causality. It argues that empirical regularities (such as statistically significant correlations between independent and dependent variables) cannot be taken as evidence of causality.

Rutten, R. (2017). Beyond proximities: The socio-spatial dynamics of knowledge creation, Progress in Human Geography, 41(2): 159-177.

This conceptual paper discusses the interaction between social space and physical place and theorizes how and why (temporary) geographical proximity is relevant for innovation and knowledge creation. The paper also argues why different kinds of knowledge creation have different socio-spatial dynamics.
