Missions Statement

Forum of Critical Chinese Qualitative Research (FCCQR) is a Special Interest Group affiliated with the International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry (ICQI). It intends to advance critical Chinese qualitative research (QR) as a locally grounded and globally informed interpretative paradigm. FCCQR will facilitate the indigenization of critical QR through scholarly research, curriculum development, and dialogue with international QR practitioners. In conjunction with the ICQI’s annual congress, the FCCQR organizes an annual one-day pre-conference for interested QR practitioners to share knowledge, identify challenges, and explore strategies that simultaneously advance critical Chinese QR and contribute to the globalization of QR.
