Reender Kranenborg (b.1942) was an editor of the magazine Religious Movement in the Netherlands published by the institute of religious studies of the Free University in Amsterdam. [1]

He received his Phd. in the theological faculty about the subject of Self-realization. He stated in the dissertation that he had attempted to research the subject following the norms of religious studies, not a theological one.[2]

Kranenborg stated in 1992 that he had received a letter from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (Dutch: "Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek" abbreviated as NWO) stating that the magazine met international quality standards.[3]

He has a seat at the Comitato Scientifico (scientific committee) of the CESNUR.[4]
