Pascale Mompoint-Gaillard

I see myself as a professional and an activist and  have worked in the area of intercultural communication, education and leadership training for the past 25 years, in Europe and the USA. For 15 years, my  activity was geared towards capacity building and community leadership within migrant and refugee communities, giving voice to marginalized persons, to organize and have their dignity restored by their active democratic participation. Presently Director of Studies and Pedagogical consultant  for the Pestalozzi Programme for education professionals of the Council of Europe, I design professional development programmes, online and face to face (blended learning),  for teachers and teacher educators in international contexts, and offer training and consultancy on educational issues related to living together in mutual understanding and promoting education for democracy. I offer lectures in European universities for pre-service and in-service teacher education. I enjoy developing resources for educators  and I am the main editor of ‘TASKs for democracy”, a handbook for teachers and teacher educators and a contributor to the “Competence for a Democratic Culture”, a framework of reference of the Council of Europe.
