My research and teaching over the years have focused on two issues: (intercultural and interreligious) dialogue and (integral and sustainable) development. The two are related. Unequal distribution of resources is an obstacle to dialogue. I am particularly interested in policy and management issues concerning dialogue and development. I conduct research projects in Tanzania, Indonesia and The Netherlands. My main topics are integration, conflict and ecology. In my studies I use the Dialogical Self Theory as research perspective, and Critical Discourse Analysis as research method. By doing so I aim to contribute to the development of practice - oriented research in religious studies and theology.
