About J.A.A. van Doorn

The prof. dr. J.A.A. van Doorn Fellowship and Chair is set up in honour of one of the Netherlands’ leading sociologists and the founder of the Sociology programme at Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR). It stimulates sociological research that relates to the style of Van Doorn. That is to say: it has a broad orientation towards an analysis of societal, political and administrative issues with a strong historical basis. Themes analysed by Van Doorn include the relationship between modernization, rationalization and technocracy, colonial history or the sociological analysis of military organizations and the use of force.

Previous Van Doorn Fellows include Professors Evelyn Ruppert, Kees Schuyt and Mark Bovens.
