The Qualitative and Fieldwork Working Group (Qualifie) is a knowledge exchange and community hub for researchers, fellows and faculty members with an interest in fieldwork, ethnography, interviewing and qualitative methodology more broadly. We are part of the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the European University Institute in Florence.
Qualifie understands itself as a student-led training and learning initiative. It is designed as a reading and discussion group as well as a networking forum for anyone interested in implementing qualitative methodology.
The Qualitative and Fieldwork Working Group is organised by Mariusz Bogacki, Wolfgang Minatti, Ophelia Nicole-Berva and Juliette Saetre. It is sponsored by Professor Jeffrey Checkel.
