Professor David Tombs is Howard Paterson Chair of Theology and Public Issues, and Director of the Centre for Theology and Public Issues, at the University of Otago. He has longstanding interests in the contribution of religious faith to social justice and political change, and the complex relationship between religion and violence. His current research includes a focus on Christian responses to torture and the response of churches to gender-based violence. Before moving to New Zealand he lectured at the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Roehampton in London, and then at the Irish School of Ecumenics, Trinity College Dublin, on their programme in conflict resolution and reconciliation in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
