Ron Kuipers New Director of CPRSE

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Ron Kuipers as Director of our Centre for Philosophy, Religion and Social Ethics, and Dr. Allyson Carr as Associate Director. Ron takes over from Dr. Lambert Zuidervaart, who served as Founding Director in 2010–2012.

Ron is Associate Professor of Philosophy of Religion at ICS. Together Ron and Allyson hope to follow up on the strong start the Research Centre has achieved under Lambert Zuidervaart's direction, continuing to promote intellectual dialogue in various contexts at the boundaries of philosophy, religion, and social ethics.

The Centre is dedicated to research at the intersection of interdisciplinary philosophy, inter-religious dialogue and social ethics. It organized the recent conference on Social Justice and Human Rights, and it plans to sponsor major collaborative research projects in the future.
