The Van Doorn Fellowship is a collaboration between NIAS and the Department of Social Sciences and Public Administration of Erasmus University Rotterdam. The fellowship stimulates sociological research that critically analyses societal issues.
The Van Doorn Fellowship and Chair is set up in honour of Prof. dr. J.A.A. van Doorn (1925–2008), Professor of Sociology at Erasmus University Rotterdam, and one of the leading sociologists in the Netherlands in the second half of the twentieth century. It stimulates the critical analysis of societal issues and research relevant to social policy.
The Jacques van Doorn Fellowship at NIAS is for 5 or 10 months and is offered once every two years. It is an invitational fellowship for a leading researcher who is expected to contribute to the development of the disciplines of Sociology and Public Administration. The Van Doorn Fellow also holds the Prof. J.A.A. van Doorn Chair at Erasmus University for one day a week, for the duration of the Fellowship. The Jacques van Doorn Fellow delivers an inaugural lecture at Erasmus University in combination with the fellowship.
• A Van Doorn Fellowship includes studio accommodation or set commuting allowance (see also Facilities for Fellows), a personal study and research facilities.
The Van Doorn Fellowship and Chair is named after Prof. dr. J.A.A. van Doorn (1925–2008), Professor of Sociology at Erasmus University Rotterdam, and founder and designer of the Department of Social Sciences and Public Administration at the university. The research policy set out by Professor Van Doorn, called "the formula of Rotterdam" is still leading in the department. The focus is on theoretical sociology that targets solutions to social problems at a macrolevel. Van Doorn was also founding editor of the magazine Beleid en Maatschappij, and he also shared his views with a wide audience as a columnist for several Dutch newspapers.
The Van Doorn Fellowship was established in 2011 in a collaboration between NIAS and the Department of Social Sciences and Public Administration of Erasmus University Rotterdam.
