Hanneke van der Korst

Hanneke van der Korst is a retired minister of the Mennonite church of the Netherlands. Until March 2009 she worked as a prison-chaplain, mostly in women's prisons. Before that she was a spiritual counselor in a nursing home. She has studied theology at the University of Amsterdam where she specialized in Pastoral Care and Womens Studies.

Her research project follows directly from her work as a prison chaplain. She wants to conduct a theoretical research of the importance and the meaning of the gender-factor in pastoral theology, as far as the pastoral care in Dutch prisons is concerned.
