- Paulo Freire
- John Dewey
- Civil Society
- Critical Pedagogy
I have a background in practical educational work in various fields before starting my research career. I am interested in the concept of citizenship, focusing in the philosophies of Paulo Freire and John Dewey and aiming at the combination of these two. At the moment I am dealing with the pragmatist notion of social intelligence. My philosophical work is linked to theory and practice of learning in civil society in Tanzania and Uganda through the GROW-project, under which I am currently working (Growth into citizenship in civil society encounters).
