Pascal has a bachelor’s degree in political science, a master’s degree in International Relations: European Union Studies, and a master’s degree in North American Studies, all from Leiden University. He is convinced of the power of education to foster active citizenship, pursue social justice and protect democratic liberties. To that end, he was active for his local and national student union. He currently also works for the GroenLinks-PvdA political group in the Dutch Senate. To escape all this ‘politicking,’ he enjoys hiking (or a leisurely stroll), woodworking, and pretending recipes to his new cookbook (spoiler: always add at least one more clove of garlic).
