Project description

Due to the growing attention in the media for Intelligent Design, we will investigate how strong the position of this phenomenon is in Flanders and the Netherlands. We will also explain this phenomenon, keeping in mind the important role of values in the debate, the differences between both regions, and the lack of scientific knowledge.
