Chris Meserole comes on the show to discuss The French Connection, a piece in Foreign Affairs based on research he’s doing with Will McCants. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Overview of the study and their initial findings
  • Problems related to the use of the term ‘radicalization’
  • The data they used and unique measurements they created to contextualize it
  • Limitations in the data available and the conclusions that makes possible
  • Reactions and criticism of their work
  • How younger scholars can get started with quantitative research
  • How Chris would like to see the field incorporate data science in the future
