Jonas Yunus Khizrau Atlas is a Belgian scholar and peace activist who writes and lectures on religion, mysticism and social change.

Though rooted within the Christian tradition, Jonas immersed himself into various other traditions, from Buddhism to Islam.

After his studies in philosophy, anthropology and theology at different universities he thus became active in different forms of local and international peace work. He currently works at Kif Kif, a Belgian NGO which fights discrimination, struggles for equality and strengthens the quest for a righteous society.

Jonas Atlas is in fact a pseudonym for Jonas Slaats. He mainly uses this pseudonym to differentiate between his writings in English and Dutch. This website (which is maintained by Yunus Publishing) provides an overview of his texts, essays and books. His Dutch writings can be found at www.jonasslaats.net
