Blueprints of Hope

Project Team

Clemens van den Berg MSc

Clemens van den Berg studied Theology/Religious Studies (BA) and History and Philosophy of Science (research master) at Utrecht University. In his master thesis he traced the influence of a European network of science managers in creating major post-war science organisations (e.g. CERN and ESA).

As a PhD Candidate in the Blueprints of Hope project, his objective is to assess how clerical networks and actors were engaged with European integration and which blueprints they produced. To this end he focuses primarily on the Ecumenical Movement. Among other archives, he will in particular analyse those of the World Council of Churches in Geneva.
