Katerina Boutsia


“Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.”

Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed

Current occupation

Non-Formal Education Trainer and Formal Education Teacher

Work experience

I have a triple background, that of a non-formal education trainer, a formal education teacher and a youth policy researcher. I love delivering trainings related to the themes of global education, migration, intercultural learing and human rights. I have studied, worked and volunteered in Europe, Asia and America. I have co-operated with international organisations for non-formal education trainings related to development education, human rights and youth participation.

Educational pathway

I hold a joint MA in Education and Human Rights from the University of Athens and the University of London and have participated in the ToT 2013-2014. I am particularly interested in democratic citizenship education and issues of ethnocentrism, racism, diversity, inclusion, migration and participation.
