The International Institute for Qualitative Methodology (IIQM) is an interdisciplinary institute based at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, but serving qualitative researchers around the world. IIQM was founded in 1998, with the primary goal of facilitating the development of qualitative research methods across a wide variety of academic disciplines.

Today, IIQM is re-focusing its efforts on change-oriented qualitative research, especially through intersectional and decolonial approaches. Please continue to visit our site for updates on opportunities as we re-build in 2023.
