The vision of AQRA is to be the leading qualitative research association in Asia and beyond.
To promote QLR and develop QLR scholars.
To touch lives by serving others in the spirit of love and compassion;
To enable others to act upon their potential, especially as a scholar and as a person;
To live by the principles of excellence in all that we commit to do.
Numbers and statistics are no longer enough to help humankind understand and solve some of today’s problems. QLR is an innovative research approach that involved interviewing and observing people in their natural settings. QLR also helps address issues thoroughly. AQRA stands for Asian Qualitative Research in Asia.
