The CIRAS team were greatly saddened to learn of the recent passing away of Professor John Davies, who was the original founder and director of CIRAS in 1996.

John was a radical, innovative psychologist with an eclectic set of research interests. We owe him a huge debt of gratitude for having the vision to establish CIRAS in the first place. Without him, CIRAS simply would not exist as it does today. His spirit, enthusiasm and energy for confidential reporting are very much alive in the current team.
