At ILSE, we publish our very own series “Christian Perspectives on Leadership and Social Ethics”.

The series Christian Perspectives on Leadership and Social Ethics is an academic peer reviewed series in the area of theological perspectives on leadership studies, social ethics and other themes that are relevant for leaders in the public domain. While written with academic rigor, this series seeks to be accessible for practitioners in leadership and leadership development. To purchase a book, please contact Peeters directly.
