Abstract

The debate on the import of QCA solutions within the configurational scholarship leaves the question open of how the technique can balance theory and its inferential rules to contribute to causal knowledge. The article finds a response in the wider methodological discourse that accounts for the relationship between a ‘treatment’ and an outcome by modeling the underlying causal situation. It shows the terms in QCA solutions can fit the causal graphs of the Structural Causal Models framework.
