The Association of European Qualitative Researchers in Psychology (EQuiP) has been officially launched. The association is not limited to people working in the field of psychology but also very open to neighbouring disciplines.

EQuiP are a society that aims to create bridges among qualitative researchers in psychology across Europe – bridges between researchers from different European countries but also bridges between different research traditions of qualitative inquiry in psychology. In doing this, they also want to contribute to (re-)think about psychology as a discipline. Their specific aims are to:

  • Provide researchers from different geographical parts of Europe opportunities to increase their visibility
  • Serve as a ‘hub’ that fosters dialogue among researchers engaged in qualitative research
  • Represent clearly the multiplicity of qualitative research approaches (or/and ‘schools’) and providing a platform for constructive exchange between colleagues working in different qualitative research traditions
  • Promote qualitative research practices from plural institutional and sociocultural backgrounds (beyond but not excluding Anglo-Saxon organisations)
  • Advance innovation in qualitative methodologies in psychology and enhance the understanding of how qualitative research can contribute specifically to psychology
  • Create dialogue with other disciplines and interdisciplinary areas
  • Overcome possible linguistic barriers and enable scholarly exchange across linguistic communities in Europe (and beyond)
