The World Conference on Qualitative Research (WCQR) is an annual event that aims to bring together researchers, academics and professionals, promoting the sharing and discussion of knowledge, new perspectives, experiences and innovations on the field of Qualitative Research. The growing success of previous editions is an important indicator of a multidisciplinary, committed and involved community in the context of qualitative research.



The 4th World Conference on Qualitative Research will take place in Porto (Portugal), 16th to 18th October 2019.
