The Centre for Prison Chaplaincy Studies focuses on academic research, education and training on issues relevant for the work of prison chaplains. The Centre wants to be a place of reflection with an interdisciplinary and ecumenical approach, and in close collaboration with people working in or for the field pastoral prison care.

The Centre for Prison Chaplaincy Studies (CPCS) is an initiative of the Tilburg School of Catholic Theology and the Tilburg Law School at Tilburg University (TiU), and the Protestant Theological University. The Centre has been established in close collaboration with the Protestant and Catholic Prison Chaplaincy in the Netherlands.
