Kaski

As a research and expertise centre for religion and society, Kaski has been a household name in the Netherlands since 1946. Kaski researchers conduct research and provide policy advice on churches, faith and meaning in Dutch society for various social clients. Kaski is part of the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies at Radboud University.

Work with us

How is your church, faith community or religious organisation developing in today's Dutch society? Which new forms of religious or meaningful communities are vital and promising? How does spiritual care contribute to the climate in your organisation? How do schools shape their identity in terms of religion and world view? Kaski has the knowledge and expertise to investigate these kinds of questions for your organisation and to provide concrete answers.

Researchers at Kaski translate social developments into policy for churches, identity-based organisations and governments. Kaski research and advice will help your organisation in, among other things:

  • Clarifying issues
  • Explore new markets and position your organisation
  • Gauge opinions and views on relevant themes
  • Policy or project evaluations
  • Design and supervision of policy changes
