Line Kuppens

Line is co-investigator of the EdJAM-funded projects ‘Uprooted’ and a post-doctoral researcher in the Centre for Research on Peace and Development (CRPD) at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven, Belgium). Currently, her research focuses on perceptions of group-based, or so-called 'horizontal', inequalities in education in the multicultural contexts of Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa and India.

Previously, she examined to what extent and under which circumstances “peace” can actually be taught. More particularly, she analyzed how the violent past and inter-group relations are addressed in secondary schools in post-conflict Côte d’Ivoire and the divided society of Kenya, and to what extent teachers are willing and able to act as agents of peace. Her general research interests include peace education, multicultural education, and citizenship education. Prior to joining CRPD, Line worked as a senior education advisor for VVOB – education for development and as a post-doctoral researcher at St.-Mary’s University, Twickenham, London.
