Visions in Methodology Meetings
Visions in Methodology (VIM) supports women who study political methodology. In addition to providing a forum to share scholarly work, VIM connects women in a field where they are under-represented.

Averaging about 30 participants, VIM's three-day conference feature research presentations and discussions on both methodological and substantive topics.
