Hi,

My 2c is that case studies is the right term.

As Steve pointed out, case studies are meant to explain the wider
context of an instance, or a case, such as policies, economics, etc and
to study the instance as a contained whole.

Being able to draw conclusions from a collection of case studies is
harder, but perhaps a classification spreadsheet would help cluster them.
